Charged Lengths and Areas

This feature helps you to quickly get a report of the charged lengths and area, that you would like to charge your customer.

Print : Press this button to get the total charged length output in RTF format. 

Update :  If you edit the Charged Length and Width column manually, the same does not get reflected immediately on the Charged Area column. To update the same click on Update button. 

Increment Length and Width by . . : It allows you to Increase or decrease the charged sizes by a certain amount. 


E.g. : If you input 10 then all the charged sizes will increment by 10. And if you input -10 then all the charged sizes will be reduced by 10.             

Thus if you want to increment all the charged sizes by same amount, you won't need to manually change each and every entry. Just click Increment Length and Width button and type the required value and click ok. All the sizes will automatically be incremented by the same amount.

Set Charge Sizes. . . : It allows you to change the type of charge size. After pressing this button, another dialog pops up

The picture below shows the actual lengths and area and the charged lengths and area when charge size is set to Round up to the next 2 inch. 

If charge size is set to Round up to next 3 inch, then the charged lengths will be as shown below.

If you select Custom Range, then you can define your own range for the charged size.
