Enter Quantities for Cost Items
Once you have added cost items to the estimate, you can enter corresponding quantities for each cost item in the estimate. By default, all cost items that were added from the catalog have a quantity of 0 (zero). This means that the cost item won't have any effect on job totals until you enter a quantity for the cost item.
However, cost items that were sent from the NotePad tab may or may not have quantities entered, depending on what information you entered in the NotePad tab.
Note that list assemblies, visual assemblies, and financial cost items may have quantities in their members or other factors that generate costs even if you have not entered a quantity.
