Note: The Fixed Assets Inventory module is licensed separately from Fixed Assets CS.

This procedure allows you to save time by copying and pasting information from one field to another.

  1. Open the active inventory.
  2. Place your cursor in the field you want to copy and choose Edit > Copy.
  3. Place your cursor in the field to contain the copied information and choose Edit > Paste.


  • You can paste any data into any field that does not maintain a list of acceptable values. However, association fields that maintain lists of acceptable values only accept values that match existing list entries.
  • You can also copy and paste assets by right-clicking in the Inventory Asset List window and using the Copy and Paste commands in the context menu.

Internal only

Support: The separate license needed to access the Inventory Module is named DINVNAME.DAT.

  • You first need to verify if the firm is licensed for the Inventory module in Flash or EMS. If they are, have the user download their licenses. If the firm encounters issues downloading their licenses, you can download the firm's license, rename their DWNAME.DAT to DINVNAME.DAT, and then email the license file you created to the firm.

    Never walk an external user through renaming their DWNAME.DAT license. This is to be completed internally only if a firm is having problems with downloading their licenses.

  • If the firm is not licensed for the Inventory module, you will need to submit an EMS Help Desk ticket so that the license can be made available to the firm through CS Connect. If the firm does not license the Inventory Module and is interested in doing so please transfer the user to Sales (x751363).
