  • How can I use this feature to install three levels of codes?

    eg.

    Preliminaries is 01

    Company Management is 01.02

    Estimator 01.02.010

  • Hi David

    Thanks for the comment. Will you be needing to export estimate information from Cubit back into the legacy Global Estimating system?  

    If yes, your cost code cannot be any longer than 6 characters. You would need to use 010210 as your cost code instead of 01.02.010

    If you are only going to use Cubit, your cost codes can be up to 25 characters long.

    Global Estimating R2 coding columns can only accept up to 6 characters.

    I hope this helps.
