Payroll Paycode Need Business Expense Piecework Unit/Rate Based

Great Plains Payroll - Version 8.00g44 - This issue is not fixed in 9.0 either.
Refer Support Incident # 8362931 if need be

If pay type is not a Business expense (Tools > Setup > Payroll > Paycode), 
and even if the Subject to taxes boxes are unchecked, the taxes are still 
calculated on these particular paycodes. 
So, for example, a pay code type of “Piecework” can never be considered as a 
business expense.

According to the present system, a true business expense has to have a 
Pay-code with a pay-type of Business Expense.

The problem with using Business Expense as a Pay-type is “it is not unit 
based”. So for a business expense, we can never pay 10 units x 12 
dollars/unit = 120.00. It will always be amount based which means 1 unit x $ 
120.00 = $ 120.00

A fine example is pay-code XPMILE  standing for Personal Mileage 
Reimbursement. According to our company policies, the pay-rate for personal 
office mileage is 0.350. 
We can never bring this into GP “unit based” to track personal mileage 
re-imbursement per employee. This always has to be amount based. 

If the employee GIRV drivers 50 miles, ideally I want to bring this as 50 
miles @ 0.350 which will equal to an amount of $ 17.50

But in the present system I need to bring this as 1 unit x 17.50 which will 
equal to an amount of 17.50. But the problem here is I lose the “number of 

Two solutions we can think of:

a) Ideally XPMILE should be of pay-type  “Piecework”. This way I can track 
the number of miles and the rate per mile. The problem is even if I uncheck 
the ‘Subject to taxes” check-boxes these wages are still used for Federal tax 
calculation/s. We can show you some examples. This needs to be fixed

b) Alternatively, you should have another pay-type called “Business Expense 
– Piecework”.

I need to touch and loop
Very simply, I have a form in a very complex application I've inherited. On that form is a date field which, if changed, fires off all the action I need to do (a LOT of it) in the access form.

I can change the value, but it doesn't fire the changed event. I tried creating a public procedure in the target form to call the update event procedure, but my calling form can't seem to...

2002 vs 2007 MS Office Excel has encountered a problem and needs t

Vista 64 bit
OK, I am so completely feed up with Vista and have been wanting to upgrade to Windows 7, but now my external hard drive has completely failed and was never working correctly with Vista anyway, because of the 64 bit issues so now I need to spend the money on a new external hard drive instead of upgrading to 7. So here's my issue: I understand now that the 64 bit issue was a software/driver issue and not a hardware issue. I was using a Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus with an XP machine. The Xp machine died and I got a Vista machine (right before the free upgrade to 7 started. Dang it!). ...

Excel 2003: Charting Two Datasets with Different Sampling Rates (T
My problem may seem simple to some, but it has me a bit perplexed. It has to do with comparing two different sets of financial data (both already in Excel 2003) on to a single chart, but their sampling rates are different (time and money). 1) X-axis (Time): One is sampled weekly and the other is monthly. 2) Y-axis (USD): One is in native USDs and the other is in USDs (x1000). Is it possible to create the chart referencing the datasets thru links or will I need to bring copies of the data sets into a single file or worksheet? If so, please tell me how?
