Welcome Screen

Use this wizard to import information about other assets from an Excel file into your CAM Database. The wizard guides you through the process of importing this data, with screens that prompt you to enter the appropriate information at each step. You can always select Back if you need to change information you entered on a previous screen, and you can select Cancel at any time. If you need help with any of the wizard's screens, select Help at the bottom left of the screen.

As you work in this wizard, keep in mind that columns in your spreadsheet correspond to asset fields. (For example, you may have a column in your spreadsheet that's labeled SN that matches up to the field that Cherwell Asset Management calls Serial #.) Each row in your spreadsheet corresponds to a single asset.

As noted on the Welcome screen, you can import more information besides the basic information such as asset type, IP address, and so on. If you want to import additional information, first create the fields you want to import.


  • You can only import Microsoft Excel files.
  • If you cancel an import operation, no records are imported.
