Overriding calculated fields and locating overridden fields

You can override the value in any calculated field in the plan.

  • To override the value of a calculated field: Enter the new value over the current value. The amount in the overridden field will be displayed in red, and the Overrides Overrides button button on the toolbar will turn red, indicating the presence of overridden data in the current federal or state module.
  • To remove an overriding value: Click the field (don't highlight it) and choose Edit > Delete Override or press the DELETE key. The data then changes back to the calculated value.
  • To locate all overridden fields for the current federal or state module: Choose View > Diagnostics > Overrides, or click the Overrides Overrides button button on the toolbar (which is enabled/red only when overridden data is present in the current module), to open the Overrides dialog. The Overrides dialog lists all overridden fields in the current federal or state module and their values. Click an item in the list to navigate to the button and tab containing the overridden field.
