Note: A custom import can only be used to change general asset information. Book Information such as Property Type, Acquisition Value, Depreciation Method, Estimated Life cannot be changed using an import process.

Note: The import spread sheet must include the System Number of the assets to be updated in order for the import to apply the changes to only the specific asset. A custom export can be used to export asset information.
