Create Location for Fixed Assets

This document explains how you define locations for a company's fixed assets. Using locations is not required, but enables you to keep track of the fixed assets.

Outcome

Locations for fixed assets are defined. There are three types of locations: Location 1, Location 2 and Location 3.

Connect up to three locations to a fixed asset type in 'Fixed Asset Type. Open' (FAS075) (optional). The locations are then automatically proposed when entering a fixed asset with that fixed asset type in 'Fixed Asset. Open' (FAS001).

You can also connect locations directly to a fixed asset in (FAS001).

The location can then be used as a selection criterion when:

The parameter file (CSYTAB) is updated.

Before you start

Parameters to Set

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates …
(FAS070/B) Location type

…a classification of a fixed asset location.

You can define up to three such types. The types can be used in two different ways, hierarchical or linear.

Example: Hierarchical

You can use the types to define locations in levels, for example, Location type 1=Country, Location type 2=City, Location type 3=Street.

Example: Linear

You can use the types to define locations on equal levels in a similar way, such as Room 1, Room 2, Room 3.

(FAS070/B) Location

…a location ID of a fixed asset.

The location ID can consist of up to five alphanumerical characters.

We recommend that you use different IDs for locations with different location types.

Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Fixed Asset. Location' (FAS070/B).

  2. Enter location type and location. Click 'New'.

  3. On the E panel, enter a description (required) and name. Press Enter.
