Update Items in the Catalog
Use the Global Update feature on the Catalog tab to update selected cost items. The global update enables you to update multiple cost items with the same information at the same time.
You can update the details of cost items in the selected catalog. This feature enables you to update details for items you individually select or that match search criteria you specify.
There are a number of update actions you can perform, depending on the information you are updating. For example, you can add an additional 10% to the cost of all concrete cost items in the catalog. You can replace the unit for all 2x4 lumber from inches to linear feet. You can add text to the end of the description for all subcontract cost items.
To update cost items in the catalog with cost items in another catalog or estimate, use the Estimating Explorer. See Update Cost Items Using the Estimating Explorer.
You can replace the reference numbers for a group of selected cost items all at once, through the use of automatic sequence numbers.
Starting Index Number: The first number in the sequence.
Increment: What to add to a number in the sequence to get the next number.
Length (digits after): How many total digits each number in the sequence contains.
