Can Reports have Budgets & Actual Costs by Cost Code?
NOW … Creating Reports requiring both Budgets & Actual Costs by Cost Code is possible!
This software creates Blank Jobcosts for Budget Cost Codes so Cost Codes will show in
reports! Install on one computer for company, run software after new jobs are entered, or
change orders written.
Enters a blank jobcost for Budgeted Cost Codes, until actual jobcosts
occur, then removes blank jobcost.

In Master Builder, when writing reports, you have to choose a “Primary Table” to do the report in.
Some Tables connect well to each other and some don’t.
For many reports where you want “Budget” and “Job Cost” numbers by Cost Code on the same report,
you run into this problem, as the cost codes from the Job Cost Table won’t show up if there is a Budget,
but no Job Cost yet (and likewise in the Budget Table).
The Job Cost Tool creates the needed Job Cost “entry” so all the cost codes show up in the reports.
This will allow any custom reports with Budgets and Job Costs to run okay.
