Asset Management Seminar Part 1 Comment from Sam W @ 5/17/2017
Did you ever complete Asset Management Part 2?  I have ordered Part 1 and would like to see what you have developed in Part 2.  I am interested in the Bar Codes (especially how to enter bar codes already used), I am also interested in the tracking changes (how to display name or serial number, not just the item numbers 9 to 4). I would also like to see how to list items in a particular location in a report style (I have 100's or even 1,000's of pieces I track and would like to list all of these items in 1 report for inventory purposes, plus add bar codes to this list).

Hi Alex, yes, exactly.  It would be great to have a log where an asset is loaned out to an entity and you have a loan record where the from and to date are completed with the to field completed when they return the asset.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I'm sure Rich can add that in.

Asset Management Seminar Part 1 Comment from Jon Turner @ 3/19/2017
I'm in agreement with all the elements you say you're looking at introducing but as with some other comments, I'd like to track signing out equipment to individuals in a 'temporary loan' subform/table.  Also, I'd like to be able to tackle the servicing of assets and keeping servicing records.

Thanks!  Hope Part 2 is coming soon!

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Great ideas.
Would you have a loan from and to date and set the to when they return?

In part 2, I would like to see a query where you enter a bunch of parentIDs (such as a field of multiple barcode scans comma delimited) and it spits out a report of all the assets that are included in them.  I can't quite figure out how to parse it into an OR statement that works.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

You could do this in VBA.
You have the Field name, use Split
Split ( expression [,delimiter] [,limit] [,compare] )
Then you could build a dynamic IN ('x', 'y') statement looping your above array
Add this to your SQL statement and set that as the Record Source of your Form, that's covered in the SQL Seminars.

Is the Depreciation of Assets going to be considered in these seminars. I think it should as a proper Asset management should include the depreciation of that asset as well. Please revert on this.

Will your seminar cover the different depreciation methods. This would be helpful and I believe essential for proper asset management. It shows on the balance sheet as a contra asset account called Accumulated Depreciation.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

The full outline is shown here.

Depreciation methods aren't shown in Part 1 but suggestions are being noted for following parts.

I would like to see a portion of this series devoted to creating a report with up to ten (10) groupings (parent/children relationships) that can be exported to Excel.

Hi Richard,

I think there is one more part for Reports. Am I right? When that is going to come?
