What Fixes

This update addresses this issue:

  • ON-4783 - When exporting the Job Cost Summary export CSV file, the Job Data File, and several of the Accounting exports, the Category Codes are exporting as their internal numbers, not the expected letter codes (M=Material, L=Labor, etc.). You can convert them from number to letter using the key attached to this article. (The Job Data File export does not support custom Category Codes, they are always exported as the generic "M", "L", "S", "E", and "O" codes.)

  • ON-2609 - Program crashes if you change the Qty/Day column on the Labor Tab in an Alternate in an interactive Bid
  • ON-3331 - In a Bid with no Net Labor costs, overriding the Bid Total on the Markups Tab does not work

Found during QA Normal Testing

  • ON-3282 - In Viewer (no-license) mode, the "Copy" button was active on the Main Toolbar
  • ON-3427 - In databases where an exceptionally large number of eQuotes have been sent, sometimes it is not possible to import a vendors response file

  • ON-3562 - Deleting multiple rows on the Subs, Equip, or Others Tab does not work correctly

  • ON-3764/ON-4148 - The Supplier column is not cleared when eQuote is unaccepted
  • ON-3862 - When Division/Section Breaks are enabled on Subs Tab, duplicate does not show the duplicate row until Tab is refreshed
  • ON-3871 - In an Alternate created in On-Screen Takeoff, right-clicking on the Materials Tab generated a "General Exception Error"

  • ON-3916 - When invoking the context menu (right-click) on the Subs, Equip, or Other Tab, it contains incorrect options at the top

  • ON-4066 - The blank/new Subcontractor row disappears on the Subs Tab when you select "Show Only Selected Subs"

  • ON-4149 - If you send an eQuote to three or more suppliers, label "Vendor Quote Total" displayed incorrectly

Known Issues

  • ON-4727 - When creating a Job Data export, there are some scenarios that cause accepted change orders not to be included when generating an export for the entire bid. If you notice this, the work-around is to run the Export without including Accepted Change Orders, and then run the Export against each Accepted Change Order.
  • ON-4807 - On the Materials Tab, if you use the "Show Description" option, Print Preview generates a "Bad Formula Result" error. A workaround for this is to select all the rows on the Materials Tab, Copy them, then Paste into Excel or Word.
  • PMTE-2295 - Selecting Active Sections does not create the sections on the Subs Tab
  • The "Set to Item Description" option for Schedule of Values Contracts is the same as "Set to Cost Code Description".
