Select WBS/UBS Code Values for Cost Items

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.

You can select WBS/UBS code values for cost items in the Catalog and Estimate tabs in two ways:
  • in the spreadsheet views of the catalog and estimate
  • on the Cost Item Detail window

You don't have to select a UBS/WBS code value that has been saved in the WBS/UBS code structure for a WBS/UBS code. You can enter any value you want for a WBS/UBS code. However, Viewpoint recommends that you set up each WBS/UBS code value to ensure that the code value is entered the same way each time.

If you are using invitation to bid, be sure the cost item in the estimate has a value for the invitation to bid WBS code specified when the estimate job was created. Only cost items that have a value for the invitation to bid WBS code can be included in an Enter Invitation to Bid Requests screen. You can check the invitation to bid item WBS code by reviewing the Manage Estimates screen.

Note: You cannot delete a cost item that is associated with an invitation to bid request.
