Federal-to-state input screen and asset module data transfer

If information is transferred from federal input screens or from the asset module to a state input screen, the application displays the transferred data in blue, for example: Field showing transferred data.

If necessary, you can overrule the transferred amount by entering the appropriate amount in the field. The application then displays the new amount in black.

  • When you overrule a transferred amount, the application does not overwrite that amount with subsequent federal-to-state or asset module data transfers.
  • To delete the overruled amount and restore the original transferred amount, right-click the field and choose Delete overrule or simply enter the original amount in the field.
  • To confirm the accuracy of the overruled amount, right-click the field and choose Acknowledge overruled data. The application then disables the acknowledge functionality from the right-click menu. To restore the original amount later, you will need to enter it manually.
  • If desired, you can set a user preference to mark fields for which you overruled the transferred amounts and to list all overruled amounts in the Diagnostics window.


Many data entry fields provide predefined statements in which you can enter additional information. For additional information, see Statements overview.
