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

To open an active inventory, perform the following steps.

  1. Open the appropriate Fixed Assets CS client.
  2. In Fixed Assets CS, choose Tasks > Inventory.
  3. Do one of the following tasks.

    • If the current client has an active inventory and does not have closed or discontinued inventories, the inventory opens in the Inventory Asset List window. Proceed with working in the active inventory.
    • If the current client does not have an active inventory, or has an active inventory and closed or discontinued inventories, the Inventory dialog opens. Select the active inventory and click the Open button, or click the New Inventory button and start a new inventory.

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).
