**PY to AR Interface Controls**

The individual lines of the common code (Numeric Values/Codes/Descriptions) may appear in any order. The value in the Codes field identifies the parameter, and values in the Numeric Values and/or Descriptions fields provide the needed parameter controls.

**Code Category: PYAR**

**Code Value: xxxx** The value for this common code is the 4-digit number of the CDH that is to have specific values used other than the defaults established through common code PYFG PY961C

RATE and FLAT are mutually exclusive, e.g., only one may be used. If RATE is used, the value in the Numeric Value field is considered a percentage to be calculated against the amount of an applicable CDH to arrive at a fee. FLAT is used when the fee is a constant dollar amount. Note that in both cases, whether RATE or FLAT is used, the actual fee amount will be multiplied by 3 or the CALC MONTHS described below, to arrive at the total fee.

CALC MONTHS is used to indicate the number of months to be calculated. That is, the amount extracted for a particular CDH during the payroll period specified at run-time will be multiplied by or the value of CALC MONTHS. The default is one (1). This calculation will arrive at the total AR amount for the reporting range. CALC MONTHS can be modified internally by the program on an individual basis if an employee has an applicable CDH assignment that ends prior to the end of the reporting range. For instance, if a period is entered at run time that has Begin and End dates of 01/01/2005 and 01/31/2005, respectively, and the value of CALC MONTHS is 3, then the reporting range is actually 01/01/2005 through 03/31/2005. If an employee to be reported has an applicable CDH assignment with an end date of 02/28/2005, then, for this employee, the multiplier will be two instead of three. Note that the calculation is done in whole months only. If the employee's CDH assignment end date in this example is for any date in February, the multiplier will still be two.
