You create or modify hourly inside records using the hourly inside editor. The usual way to open the editor is to click New Hourly Inside or Edit in the View section of Coding Definitions | Work Orders | Labor | Hourly Inside.

The hourly inside editor window contains the following:

Code: A brief code to identify this record. No two records may have the same code.

Description: A longer description of the record (employee and trade).

Employee: A record in the employees table specifying an employee to associate with this hourly inside record. You must create the employee record before you can fill in this field. For more on contacts, see Employees.

Trade: A trade to associate with this type of work. You must create the trade record before you can fill in this field. For more on trades, see Trades.

Cost: The hourly rate paid for the work.

Cost Center: The cost center to be used in connection with this labor expense. For more on cost centers, see Cost Centers.

Comments: Any comments you want to associate with the hourly inside rate.

Save: Saves the current record. The editor window stays open in case you want to make more changes to the same record.

Save & New: Saves the current record and sets up the window for you to enter a new record. Fields in the new record will be blank or set to default values.

Save & Close: Saves the current record and closes the editor window.

Cancel: Closes the window without saving any changes you've made to the record since the last time you saved. When you Save the record, the Cancel button changes to Close, indicating that you can safely close the window without losing any changes.

Close: Closes the window. This button only appears after you've saved changes with Save or before you've entered any data at all. Otherwise, the button is labeled Cancel.
