Business Block Compare
For any one or more selected business blocks, the Business Block Compare utility compares the number of rooms allotted and room allotment revenue figures shown on the business block room grid with the same information computed from the total activity recorded in the change log. Business blocks for which a mismatch exists are displayed in the Business Block Compare Utility grid. In the event of a discrepancy, you may use the utility to correct the change log so that the values on the business block room grid and change log agree.
To access the Business Block Compare utility, select Utilities>Business Block Compare from the main Utilities screen. The Business Block Compare Utility screen appears.
Use the search criteria to select the business blocks you wish to check for discrepancies. Enter your options and select the Search button. The search results grid will show only business blocks where a mismatch exists between the room allotment and/or revenue figures on the business block room grid and the change log.
