           Uses standard properties

           Saves the asset item to the database

           Sets any properties set by the database that were not in the original object, usually
           ID (if no match to current ID or if ID was undef).

           Parses a csv file.  Sets $self->{import_entries} to an arrayref where each member is
           an arrayref of fields.  It is up to the workflow script to handle these entries.

           Header information is set to $self->{import_header}.

       get Gets a fixed asset, sets all standard properties.  The id property must be set.

           Searches for asset_items matching criteria.  Sets $self->{search_results} to the

           Search criteria set by the following properties: * id * asset_class * description *
           tag * purchase_date * purchase_value * usable_life * salvage_value *
           start_depreciation * warehouse_id * department_id * invoice_id * asset_account_id *

           Tag and description are partial matches.  All other matches are exact.  Undef matches
           all values.

           Saves a note.  Uses the following properties:

           * id * subject * note

           Sets the following:

           warehouses/locations * deprtments:  List of all departments * asset_accounts:  List of
           all asset accounts * dep_accounts:  List of all depreciation accounts * exp_accounts:
           List of all expense accounts

           Returns next tag number

           Sets $self->{tag} to that value.

           Uses standard properties.  Saves record in import report for batch review and
