Target Asset Information Tab

Ordinarily, the Target Asset Information tab contains information about the surviving (target) asset—the asset that will absorb one or more other assets that are retired as the result of merge. That said, the user may also use this tab to make changes to the asset description or to change the asset description altogether. The Asset lookup Description: searchicon enables the user to search for a different target asset.
