#### Number Sign in a Cell?

It has come to our attention that a few of our users noticed number signs in the labor dollar totals cell.  This happens if your labor rate exceeds a certain amount, the last occurence was from a labor rate of more than $100 per hour.  Although most shops wont have this problem, we are working on a fix and will replace copies that are effected.  All you need to do is let us know, we will send you a copy with the fix.

In the mean time, there is a fix you can do on your copy if you dont want to wait for us, the ####### signs in the effected cell means the number is too large to display, therefore it places the # sign to let you know "there is a number here, we just cant display it because it's to wide for the cell".  using the unlock code supplied, you can unlock the pages effected and simply make the column slightly wider until the ##### goes away and your number is displayed again.

In conclusion:  We are working on a fix and will upload the updated versions to accomidate the larger labor rates.  Custom and Restoration shops can charge more per hour.  Collision rates are set by the Insurance companies (I know right?  We dont like it either but dont even get me started) and typically are under $100.

So contact us if you need assistance, we will post status when its completed.  Sorry if this was annoying for a select few, but the fix is in :)


BTW:  Dont forget to relock the changed pages...
