This field is for templates with sort order of ‘A-Actual’ or ‘D-Posting Date’ only.
During initialization, this field defaults a date based on the posted job cost detail and cannot be overridden.
For manually added lines, enter the date that applies to the line.
The date represented here depends on the template’s sort order. If the sort order is Actual Date, then this field represents the actual transaction date for the detail line. If the sort order is Posting Date, then this field represents the date the line posts.
If the template sort option is other than ‘Actual Date’, the system will compare this date against the Effective Date specified for labor, equipment, and material rates (as applicable) to determine whether to use the ‘old rate’ or ‘new rate’.
