QB Issue Resolution:
The Detail Type is not used for any reporting, so it doesn’t matter, for reporting. Maybe one day it will be used for tax mapping, or it may already be by Proseries, the accountant’s tax prep program made by Intuit. If your accountant doesn’t use Proseries, it doesn’t matter, for tax purposes. But just in case they enable the user to export to tax prep software one day, maybe you should enter a Detail Type that makes sense. Use the generic choice like Other, if nothing else fits. For building assets, you should split the cost into land and buildings, as only the building is depreciable
