    Jason,

    Thank you for contacting Simsol Support. After accepting the 3rd Quarter 2016 database update you may find that some items (e.g. Seal Ceiling) have a zero unit cost within previously written estimates that were created using either the 1st Quarter or 2nd Quarter pricing tables.

    This is due to the latest update being, not only a pricing update but, also a VSS layout update. In changing the layout of scopes and categories to represent more of a floor-to-ceiling flow, some categories and items have shifted around.

    This will only affect previously created estimates using these older tables. In addition, this only affects items being added after the update, previously scoped items should not change.

    The best solution is to update the estimate you're working on to the newest pricing table. If you elect to perform the “Update All Line Items in This Estimate” option when switching tables, the pricing of existing items may (most likely) change but, this action will ensure that all scope items have pricing data. I have attached a screenshot which illustrates where this can be done within a file.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions about this process.

    Regards,
    Ron Murray
    Director of Support
