General Bill Data

In order to process a Bill the computer needs to know how to format the document and which Sections of the work to include in this Bill.

It gets this information from the Bill Formatting and Site Layout and the relevant files for both sets of data must be specified within the Bill Type before the Bill can be processed.

Details of how to use the Bill Formatting are given in Chapter 16 (Formatting) and details of how to use the Site Layout are given in Chapter 15.

Bill Style (S=standard,E=elemental,A=abstract)

Produce Bill Abstract (Formerly know as Analysis)

This option is available for both Work Group and Trade Bills. The layout of the Bill is the same as the Standard Work Group/ Trade Bill but in this case the quantities for each item are analysed on a room-by-room basis and the quantities for each room are printed against the room code underneath the relevant item. The quantities for each room are divided into the gross quantity; the amount of any adjustment made to the item and the net quantity. The total of adjustments includes only those made using the adjustment code facility. Other adjustments made simply by adding or deducting items with a full item code will be included in the gross quantity.

Where quantities are generated using Auto-Trad, this routine produces a traditional Bill Abstract.

Bill production menu (processing)

The Bill Production routines take the data from the preceding Calculation process and format it into the final document.

Since it uses the appropriate calculated data it is essential that the corresponding calculation routine has been run before you try to produce the final document. It isn't essential that any errors produced by the calculation process have been corrected but if they haven't been the final document will reflect the errors.

The Production process gets the required format from the Format worksheets paginates the data and word processes the document into it's final form.
