  4. Calc: 10
  5. Sub Key: Paper
  6. Basis Size Sheet: Square inches of basic sheet size
  7. Filter on Basis Square Inches for Non-Stock: Makes available only Non-Stock items with matching Basis Square Inch definition
  8. Basis WT: Option to define default basis weight for paper
  9. Caliper: Paper Caliper (optional, used by cutting by caliper and max press speeds by caliper)
  10. Default for Price: $/M (per 1000 sheets) or CWT (per 100 pounds)
  11. Default for Weight: Basis WT or MWT
  12. Paper Type: Coated or Non-Coated (used only by Calc 12: Ink)
  13. Filter on Coated for Non-Stock: Makes available only Non-Stock items with matching Coated setting
  14. Protect Pounds: Prevents override of calculated paper

Estimate Specification Input Prompts:

  1. Order Size (defaults to run size)
  2. #Out for Press: Number of press sheets available per order sheet size
  3. Cost Code: Default for Price ($/M or CWT)
  4. Basis Weight (or MWT): Default weight of paper, modifiable
  5. Caliper: Default caliper of paper, modifiable
  6. Order Sheets: Gross run sheets (plus makeready sheets if calc 6 ‘order MR sheets’ selected)
  7. Rate: Rate per unit of measure ($/M or CWT)

Select Inventory: Option to select specific inventory item (Available if Inventory active), Non-Stock Item or Free Form Item.  Selected items will update item specific fields and display item code and description to the left of the Select Inventory button.  The field below the button can be used to type a vendor item code for quick entry.


(Gross Run Sheets + Makeready Sheets) / Press Sheets Out = Order Sheets

Order Pounds (if MWT) = (Order Sheets x MWT)/1000

Order Pounds (if BWT) = (Order Sheets x Order Size x BWT)/(500 x Basis Size)

Paper Cost $ (if $/M) = (Order Sheets / 1000) x $ Rate

Paper Cost $ (if CWT) = (Order Pounds / 100) x $ Rate

Paper Cost $ x Markup % = Markup $

Paper Cost $ + Markup $ = Sell $
