The newly added table rate or limit should have the same format as the earlier existing line for that table.

If these tables are added after the beginning of the year, you will need to update each employee's history (.E SUTA) for Basis Amount only.  

The HDI calculates YTD, so it will correct itself if the wrong rate was used in a prior payroll, or if tables were incorrect.

If .E Suta is mistakenly updated from the toolbox:

If .E Suta tables were updated properly in the past as discussed above, no adverse impact will occur.  However, if the tables were changed each year instead of adding new tables with the proper effective date, this could cause a zero to overwrite your rate.  If your tables still have only one line with the default effective date 01/01/1992, then updating this item from the toolbox will cause a zero to load in your rate and/or limit tables.
