15841: Changing Hours Worked in Live or ATF Payroll (DAS)


Drake Accounting®: How do I change the entries for Total Regular Hours, Overtime Hours, and Hours Worked?


The Payroll module of Drake Accounting® will pull the rates and hours from the Employee > Employee Setup > Payroll Wages & Rates for each employee by default.


When you access either Live or ATF under the Payroll module, the default amounts are shown in the Rates & Hours​ section for the selected employee. The lower boxes, for ​Total Regular Hours​Hours Worked, an Overtime Hours, are inaccessible because they calculate based on the Rates & Hours entries.

If the payroll should calculate using a different number of hours or rate, and the change is temporary, modify the Rate, ​Hours, and/or OT boxes as needed. The changes will update the calculated fields after pressing TAB or ENTER or moving to a different field.

Changes under Rates & Hours affect only the current instance and are discarded after the window is saved or closed.

 Note: For recurring differences, it is recommended to add additional Rates for the employee, see related articles.
