Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

In the Report Designer, you can change the salary rate on the Data Entry Worksheet report to print the per-check rate.

To open a report or financial statement layout for editing, choose File > Report Designer; in the Reports list frame, click the + sign next to the document type folder to expand the list, and then double-click a report or financial statement layout to open it in the design grid.

Prior to making changes for a report, letter, or financial statement in the Report Designer, we recommend that you choose File > Save As to save the document with a different name. To restore a predefined report in which changes have been made, choose File > Restore Default.

To change the salary rate in the Data Entry Worksheet:

  1. Select cell C19 in the main region of the design grid.
  2. Choose Insert > Conditional Expression and add the following condition to change the annual salary to a monthly salary:

    [Employee.PayItems.CalculationType] - Contains - "Salary"

  3. Add the following actions:
    • If true, print [Employee.PayItems.Rate / 12]
    • If false, print [Employee.PayItems.Rate]

    Note: If the client is not on a monthly payroll schedule, select the If true, print field and replace the value 12 with the number of annual payroll periods.
