The cost card details editor is where you go to view and edit the details of a cost card. The screen is broken up into three sections. The topmost section shows information from the expense document this card sits on. The middle section is where you can view and edit the cost card details. The bottom section shows you all the history for this cost card.

This form can be reached by clicking on the View button for any cost card in the Expense Document Editor.

Permissions and Settings

You can only edit expense details if the cost card is in draft status. Otherwise all the fields are view only.

VAT fields are editable when the expense document allows it. See VAT for Expenses to learn about what settings need to be in place.

Expense Document Section

This top section contains a number of fields that describe the expense document this cost card is on. I'm not going to get into all the details of these settings because they are already covered in the Expense Document Editor help page. See the Document Details section.

Cost Card Section

The middle section contains details about this specific cost card. If the cost card is in draft status then these fields are editable. 



Incurred Date

The date that this expense item was incurred.


Open the drop-down menu and choose the project for which the expense will be reported. The last ten projects you have submitted expense reports to will appear automatically in this list. If the project is not in the list of choices, press the <lookup> option to open the Select Project form, allowing you to choose a project against which to report these expenses. When a project code is selected the Project Name will be automatically populated.


Only available when editing cost cards on an expense report. Leave as blank if expense was paid out-of-pocket by the resource. If paid with a company credit card, choose that credit card provider from the dropdown list. The dropdown list is populed based on your Vendor Editor settings.
