Code 
Enter a formula code. 

Description 
The description for the chosen code displays. Another description may be entered, and a window is available to a userdefined variable description field. 

Formula calculation 

Result 
Enter a result code: T1 through T15 are temporary variables, or press Enter to accept the system default to (A)nswer. 

1st factor 
Enter a variable (G, N, R, O, D, A, V1, V2, V3, F, S, C, L, W), number, or result code, or press F4 to select from a list of available formula variables.


Operator 
Enter the operation to be performed (+, , *, D, MIN, MAX), or press F4 to select from a list of available operators.


2nd factor 
Enter a variable (G, N, R, O, D, A, V1, V2, V3, F, S, C, L, W), number, or result code, or press F4 to select from a list of available formula variables.


Basis / allocation 
Is this formula based on each Time card line or Union total? Following the basis designation, the software will advance to the test section of the screen and allow the user to doublecheck the formula by entering information in the test box. When Time card line is specified, the calculation will occur for each line independently. When Union total is specified, then all lines for the union are grouped together for purposes of the calculation. This is necessary when a fixed calculation is performed, for example, such as [(% of Gross) – (Fixed Amount)]. Example: When Union total is specified as the basis for the calculation, an additional field appears, prompting for the allocation method across applicable time card lines. Available options are Gross percentage, Regular hours, Overtime hours, Double time hours or All hours. This is relevant for allocating the union fringe costs across multiple lines of the time card file.


Userdefined variables
