Fixed asset number [AX 2012]

Updated: March 31, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The following prioritized options are available for fixed asset numbering.

  1. A number sequence is set up in the Fixed asset groups form.

    If the fixed asset group is set up with a group-specific number sequence and is selected for automatic numbering, the new fixed asset number is from the number sequence of the fixed asset group.

  2. A general number sequence is set up in the Fixed assets parameters form.

    If no number sequence exists for the particular fixed asset group, but a number sequence has been set up in the Fixed assets parameters form, and if Autonumber fixed assets is selected, a number is assigned from the parameter number sequence.

  3. Number sequences have been set up for some fixed asset groups and in the Fixed assets parameters form.

    Number sequences for fixed asset groups have higher priority than the general number sequence in the Fixed assets parameters form. Therefore, whenever a number sequence exists for the fixed asset group, the number is allocated from the fixed asset group number sequence.

    If a fixed asset belongs to a fixed asset group and does not have its own number sequence, fixed asset numbers are assigned from the parameters number sequence.

  4. No number sequences for fixed asset groups exist and the Autonumber fixed assets check box was not selected at the end of the last depreciation period.

    With this setup, no fixed asset number is allocated but must be entered manually.
