I have set up code GP2 to the OT rate, but when I run Payroll Check Computation and add the entry for OT hours, it still uses the amount from GP1 (although it show code GP2 and description "overtime" in the matrix. I then Have to re-key the correct OT rate for this entry. What is the correct way to have the program use the correct rate for OT?
That helps, but unfortunately I'm not familiar with the EasyAcct accounting package. Can you edit your post to show EasyAcct instead of ProSeries in order to increase you odds of getting help? In a worse case scenario, you can always try calling support.

Oh, are you saying that you have set up "Rate 2" in the Pay Rates section on the employee screen? If so, I've never known the Rate 2 and Rate 3 fields to be anything other than for reference. I do not know if or how the system would automatically pick those up for anything. Typically the system will calculate OT based off of Std/Rate Salary field. Is your OT not paid at 1.5 time the normal hourly rate? If not, maybe if you change the OT factor to whatever you pay - perhaps if it's double time for instance - set it to "2".
When I add an entry for OT hours, I select rate2. It displays it as Overtime, but still uses the rate in rate 1. I have also tried using the Std/Rate salary field (set the OT factor to 1.5) but still no go. Is there a instruction manual that details how to set this up?
