This batch job is used to adjust one or more fields on the resource card. For example, you can change the direct unit cost by 10% on all resources from a specific resource group. The changes are processed immediately after the batch job is started. The fields on the resource card that are dependent on the adjusted field are also changed.
To select the field to be adjusted, choose one of the following Adjust Field option buttons on the Options tab: Direct Unit Cost, Indirect Cost %, Unit Cost, Profit %, Unit Price.
This batch job does not create or adjust alternative costs or prices for resources. It only changes the relevant fields on the resource card.
The adjustment will take direct effect on the resource table, so check your settings thoroughly before clicking the OK Button.
You can define what is included in the batch job by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the Resource tab by clicking the Field field, then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right. You can also determine what is included in the batch job by filling in the fields on the Options tab. Fill in the fields as follows:
No.: Here you can specify the numbers of the resources to be included in the batch job. To see the existing resource numbers, click the Filter field, then click the AssistButton that appears to the right.
Resource Group no.: In this field you can select the resource groups to be included in the batch job. To see the existing resource groups, click the Filter field, then click the AssistButton that appears to the right.
