Splitting Change Items on the SOV

Q: When I use the Get COs option on my SOV workbook, the Change Item from my Change Order is listed at the bottom of the workbook. I want to break it out into several line items on the SOV. Is there a way to do that?

A: Yes! By default, when you use the Get COs option, each Change Item from each Change Order will be listed as a separate line on your SOV workbook, but there is a way to split Change Items onto multiple SOV lines.

To split a Change Item onto multiple SOV lines:

  1. When you open the SOV workbook, use the Get COs for Copy-In option (instead of the Get COs option). The Select COs dialog box will appear:
    201607 Get COs for CopyIn
  2. Select your Change Order(s) and click Insert. The Copy In worksheet will appear with your Change Items.
  3. Type Descriptions for new lines that you want to add to the SOV workbook.
  4. Change the Original Amount numbers so that the total for the Change Order remains the same.
  5. Select the Append to SOV option.
    201607 Append to SOV
    All the lines will appear on the Application worksheet, attributed to the correct Change Order, and the totals will be correct.
