This field and the next one will only appear if PR Setup is set to use job numbers and the Job Costingpackage is in use.  If the distribution is assigned a job number, the user has the option to enter a shop order number to associate the distribution with a specific shop order.  This allows for more accurate tracking of payroll expenses.  The shop order number entered must be on file in Job Costing under the job number entered in the previous field.


4 numeric digits.

If a job number and a shop order number have been entered, the user must enter an operation that is on file in Job Costing under the previously entered job and shop order numbers.  If these conditions are not met, a message will display and the cursor will return to the Shop-# field.

Hours  (continued)


A percentage is entered when distributing salary starting at 100% and payment being made for the 100% to one account or broken up to varying ones.


The default will always be the number of hours or percent remain­ing for the type of distribution selected.  Since holiday hours are not entered on the first screen, this will be a percent for holiday pay.

Shift Differential

3 alphanumeric characters.

This field will appear on a pop-up window only if the employee is flagged for shift differential distributions in the Employee File.


Enter a valid shift code to calculate a shift differential for the employee.  If no shift differential needs to be calculated, leave the field blank.

The amount distributed will default on pressing the F1 key to the hours distributed times the rate entered.
