The DataSource is a list of materials and
associated prices & labor units. There are two sample DataSources included
the CostPlus DataSource, which is used for Time&
Billing, and the LaborUnits
DataSource. You can create your own DataSource or
modify an existing DataSource.
Editing/Modifying a DataSource is as simple as adding
Sections, Groups, SubSections & items. To rename an item you simply Click on
the item you want to change - Click again
and rename it. Rearrange Sections, Groups, SubSections & items by Dragging
& Dropping them where you want. Double-Click on
an Item and edit Material Costs, Labor Rates, Mark-up's etc.
Group Revisions allow you to change all items in a Section, Group or SubSection by a specified
percentage. By dealing with a group of items you can quickly change material costs
when you learn of an increase in prices.
Utilities have been included so that you may convert an existing pricing DataSource
you are already using.
