Help with entries for exisiting assets

Could someone help me with journal entries for recognising an existing asset with accumulated depreciation please? I am using VT Transactions+ if that helps. :-)

    Thank you for answering - sorry my question was lacking detail.
    I am entering opening balances in a new accounting system for an existing business with an existing building, which has accumulated depreciation over the years and will have a depreciation charge this year. VT Transactions does not have an asset register to use.

    I'm using VT Transactions, not VT Final Accounts so no asset register. Sorry, this is a new one for me, so the answer is probably very obvious but I can't wrap my head around it. As the asset is existing and wasn't paid for in this year, where is my opposing entry to the asset account?
