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

Perform the following steps to locate assets in the active inventory by searching for specific terms that appear in the asset you are looking for.

Tip: You can also locate assets by scanning an asset's barcode label.

  1. Open the active inventory.
  2. Choose Edit > Find Asset.
  3. In the Find Asset dialog, enter a portion of a word, an entire word, or a phrase that appears in the asset you are looking for.
  4. Select one of the following items from the In drop-down list to specify where in the asset you want to search.

    • Description
    • Asset Note
    • Tag #
    • Serial #
    • Custom Association Name
    • Insurance Policy #
    • Lic/Reg/Cert #
    • Model #
    • Warranty #

    Note: The following associations will appear in the drop-down list only if they are turned on for the client: Serial #, Custom Association Name, Insurance Policy #, Lic/Reg/Cert #, Model #, and Warranty #. See Setting up asset associations for details about turning on associations.

  5. Click the Find button.
  6. Fixed Assets CS highlights the first asset that contains the text string you entered. Click the Find button again to move to the next asset that contains the text string, if necessary.

Internal notes


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).
