  • (11/28/2016) On Center has identified an issue with the Payroll Report in build If you use the same PRC for Labor and Indirect Expenses, the PRC is shown twice in the Payroll Report (and included twice in the totals).  On Center is working on a patch to resolve this issue and will update the Product Information and Downloads page as soon as a fix is available. This has been FIXED in build, posted on 12/6/2016.
