Totals Page (SQL Estimating): Adjust the Job Total
You can adjust the job total and then spread the amount back to the estimate. For example, if your typical price for a warehouse in $1,500,000 and your estimate totals $1,417,000, adjust the entire estimate up to $1,500,000 (just type over the estimate total) and distribute the amount back to the estimate. You can distribute amounts proportionally over the entire estimate or to specifically portions of the estimate (right click on the Adjusted total or Variance or click on the Spread Variance button to get to the “Spread Variance” feature). This is especially useful when an owner has an idea of what the project should cost. Note: the adjustment can be positive or negative.
