Recalculate Alternates

You can recalculate alternates to completely refresh them. When you click Recalc, the application recalculates all assemblies, financial items, totals, and removes any temporary sorts. If sort fields are defined, they are reapplied.

You can recalculate all alternates from the Alternates tab. If you want to update financials for selected alternates, use Allocate Financial Cost Items in Alternates or open each alternate to recalculate it from the Alternate window.

If the Totals at the bottom of the Alternates tab are red, the alternates have changed and may need to be recalculated. However, the Totals may not change when you recalculate. If a specific alternate needs to be recalculated, the Financials and XtdCost fields on the Summary tab on the Alternate window appear in red.

To open a job in the Manage Estimates screen, click Estimating > Estimating > Manage Estimates in the All Tasks pane. Then select the job you want to open, and click OK.
