SQL Estimating – Compare Cost Using the Cost Variance and Cost Comparison Reports
The Cost Comparison report allows you to compare up to 10 estimates’ quantities, unit costs and totals. The Variance report allows you to compare the variance between two estimates. Both reports allow you to group the columns by column titles or by estimate. Both reports print a table of contents.
You can also have the report print all levels at once. For example, you can print a report by Group Phase, Phase and an Item sort. The report would first print a Group Phase summary, next a phase summary and then a detail report.
If addons are exactly the same and in the same order on all estimates being compared, you can get a comparison of addons by addon. If the addons are different, they will compare in one summarized line.
