You create or modify per job outside records using the per job outside editor. The usual way to open the editor is to click New Per Job Outside or Edit in the View section of Coding Definitions | Work Orders | Labor | Per Job Outside.

The per job outside editor window contains the following:

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

Description: A description of the job associated with this record.

Vendor: The outside contractor you hire to do this job.

Trade: A trade classification for the contractor. This trade should already exist in your trades table. For more information, see Trades.

Order Line Text: What should be written on a purchase order when ordering per job work from this contractor.

Cost: The cost charged by the contractor.

Vendor Accounts Payable Cost Center: A read-only field giving the cost center to which this labor expense should be charged. This information is taken from the vendor record. For more on cost centers, see Cost Centers.

Comments: Any comments you want to associate with this record.

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.
