About Updating Previous Billed Amounts on Future Bills
You can update the previous billed amounts for future bills when changing values on a T&M billing.
When you change the values of a billing, whether interfaced, active, or in a closed month, you have the option to either manually update previous billed amounts or have the system update the values automatically (recommended).
To have the system automatically update previous billed amounts, current contract and contract units, and ACO adds/deducts, select the Automatic Update of Prev Billed and ChgOrder Amounts on Future Bills check box in JB Company Parameters. When this box is checked and changes are made to a billing, the system automatically updates the previous billed amounts, current contract, and contract units by including the value of the change for the current billing to the previous amounts of all subsequent (future) billings.
If you elect to manually update these values, do not select the check box. Each time a billing changes, go to the previous billing and select. The system updates the previous billed amounts by including the value of the changed billing to the previous amount of all subsequent billings.
Using the Delete button – This function can only be used on billings that have not been interfaced. If you elect to use this option and the 'auto update previous' feature is in use, the system will automatically update the previous amounts for all subsequent billings. If you are not using 'auto update previous', select the prior billing and use the manual update option ( ) to update the previous amounts on all subsequent billings.
Setting the Status to Delete – This function is used for interfaced or closed-month billings, but can also be used for active billings. When this option is used, the system updates previous amounts automatically (if using the 'auto update previous' feature). However, if not using the 'auto update previous' feature, select the prior billing and use the manual update option ( ) to update the previous amounts on all subsequent billings. The system skips bills marked for deletion during the update process, but the previous amounts for all other future billings update accordingly.
