Asset# vs BarCode

Guest George

Recommended Posts

We use our own in-house barcodes to identify asset numbers but which field should the value go in - Asset# or BarCode?


Unfortunately our staff have been using one or the other which leads to my next question - can we migrate the values between fields somehow to bring them all together?

The Asset# field should be used for your in house barcodes.

The barcode field is meant for barcodes you will find on the item when purchased such as UPC barcode.

If you have Microsoft Access you could open the ASSETS.Mdb file and simply copy the contents of the BarCode field to Asset#.  Or create a simple SQL Query to do that, we can assist if you wish.  If you are using the Enterprise version a simply SQL Query will copy the field.
