Assigning Grouping Codes to a Job from Cubit version 7 to 10


Cubit Version 7 to Cubit Version 10

Job Grouping or Grouped Views, allows you to group similar information together using Quantity group codes or Rate group codes.

In Cubit Estimating Standard edition, one (1) group code can be assigned per Job and up to twenty (20) codes for Cubit Estimating Professional edition.

Assigning Group Codes

1. To assign grouping codes to a job, open the Job in Cubit Estimating, and select Edit Columns from the Configuration tab.

Note: The ability to add more than one (1) code list is only available in the Professional version of Cubit Estimating.

Assigning Codes for Jobs transferred from Global Estimating or Offsider Estimating to Cubit Estimating:

For Cubit Estimating jobs that have come from Global Estimating or Offsider Estimating, their codes need to be applied with the Q/Q2/R/R2 Constraint.

1. From the Grouping Codes window, tick the constraint boxes to apply Q/Q2/R/R2 Constraint accordingly.

  • 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.
