Result Finder dialog

The Result Finder is a feature that automatically varies the dollar amount of a selected federal data entry field until the desired result of a selected federal calculated field is found.

To open the Result Finder, choose Tools > Result Finder. In the Result Finder - Column Selection dialog, choose an alternative and year and click OK.

You can use the Result Finder in two ways: Solve mode and Step mode.

  • Solve mode allows you to indicate a desired amount for a selected calculated field. The Result Finder then solves for the dollar value needed for one or two selected data entry fields in order to achieve that desired amount.
  • Step mode allows you to see the effect that incremental changes in the values of one or two selected data entry fields will have on a selected calculated field.

After you run the Result Finder, you will have the option to transfer data entry values to your plan.
