Cost1-10 fields

The Cost1-10 fields can store any custom task, resource, or assignment cost information you want. The default cost is $0.

There are three categories of Cost1-10 fields.

Data Type    Currency

Cost1-10 (task field)

Entry Type    Calculated or entered

Best Uses    Add one of the custom cost fields to a task sheet whenever you want to add custom currency data to task information.
