Questions and Answers
 Question 1: There is some new functionality in 9.2 for Joint Venture. Is there anything for the cash settlements between companies as it relates to Joint Ventures and Job Cost?
 Question 2: Migrating from World to E1 9.2.. Moving existing jobs to E1 and reviewing the RPO functionality. If we convert from World to E1 does the obsolete jobs program sill need to be run when running profit recognition at the summarization level of '4'? Or will those converted jobs be able to use the functionality with out running the obsolete process?
 Question 3: When jobs have been created to roll-up to projects will the standard job cost reports combine the data and roll them up to a project level?
 Question 4: When setting up a new Job / Business Unit using Job Master Revisions (P51006) a new G/L account is created for the Job in the Account Master (F0901) file. This account does not contain an object or sub account, but is created only for the Job Number (Business Unit). Is there an option that will automatically populate the post edit code on this new G/L account number?
 Question 5: How can we track changes made to the Job Cost records?
 Question 6: There is a requirement from one of my project managers to be able to capture "physical Percent of Complete" on a project. He has made mention this Physical POC of complete is DIFFERENT than the E1 system generated percent of complete on a project. He is telling me that this Physical POC will be manually communicated to us via a phone call per say and then he wants to take this value and manually input it into a field in E1 that will be picked up in downstream reports, etc. Is there any recommendations on where this value should be updated? What is best practice on handling this " Physical POC". Profit Recogniton is run on these projects.
