Import Fixed Assets

This module allows the import of Fixed Assets from a CSV file.

Before starting the import a number of sanity checks are performed such as:

  • check for duplicates
  • check if asset profiles are correct

If no issues are found the assets will be loaded. The resulting Fixed Assets will be in draft mode to allow a final check before confirming the asset.


Input file column headers

Mandatory Fields

  • Reference

    The Reference is checked for uniqueness to avoid loading of duplicate assets.

  • Asset Name

  • Asset Profile

  • Purchase Value

    Purchase Value in Company Currency

  • Asset Start Date

    Date format must be yyyy-mm-dd

Other Fields

Extra columns can be added and will be processed as long as the column header is equal to the 'ORM' name of the field. Input fields with no corresponding ORM field will be ignored unless special support has been added for that field in this module (or a module that extends the capabilities of this module).

This module has implemented specific support for the following fields:

  • Partner

    The value must be unique. Lookup logic : exact match on partner reference, if not found exact match on partner name.

A blank column header indicates the end of the columns that will be processed. This allows 'comment' columns on the input lines.

Empty lines or lines starting with '#' will be ignored.


If you need to override values from the selected Asset Profile, you should enter those fields after the 'Asset Profile' field.

Known Issues

This module uses the Python csv module for the reading of the input csv file. The input csv file should take into account the limitations of the csv module:

Unicode input is not supported. Also, there are some issues regarding ASCII NUL characters. Accordingly, all input should be UTF-8 or printable ASCII. Results are unpredictable when this is not the case.
