General parameters > Chapter Fixed assets > Parameter DISAFAS (Import the "inactive" assets) 

Use this parameter to manage assets when creating them directly in Fixed assets or importing them using the FASX3 or FAS standard import templates.


  • Assets created directly in Fixed assets are Active by default and can be changed to Inactive as along as there have been no modifications such as changing the account allocation, changing the method, transfer or if it was part of a closing.
  • Imported assets are set to Inactive by default and normally you cannot perform any actions like changing the account allocation or changing the method.

Yes – Select this option if you need to import an asset whose data is incomplete or incorrect. This allows you to complete or correct asset data in Fixed assets even though it is Inactive. After the data is completed and corrected, you can and must change the status to Active so that it can be considered in various calculations such as closing procedures.

No – When you select this option, assets created directly in Fixed assets or imported are Active and cannot be changed to Inactive. However, Inactive assets can still be changed to Active. This can occur when this parameter is temporarily set to Yes during a recovery phase to enable modifying imported assets.
