whats are the Formulae for
1. reduction to ellipsoid correction
2. Line scale error coreection
using final stations heights to compute
Any help would be great

Is this what, you are looking for. I am confused on your ? But look over it
I have a lot of Data on this subject.
This site has a lot of good info plus this. Go Thru Geodesy also.
Look under Corrections

Here is some good reading.
Here from NOAA , I sent these 2 to Raymond Kinglsy on one of his Discussion.
But NOAA has a lot more on this subject at there site.
Did I forget to tell you I added one on Geoid and MSL, there is also some more info on it.In the others. Thanks for the programs again i never seen these P to R or the R to P. I like it,very short, i like that. that is why i use mine so much. I will try them in some programs.
Some of this might help.
From PS reference handbook:
Correction = −0.005288 sin2φ h Δφ arc1′
where: φ = Latitude at starting point h = Datum elevation in meters or feet at starting point Δφ = Change in latitude in minutes between the two points (+ in the direction of increasing latitude or towards the pole)
h ≈ H + N
where: h = Ellipsoid height N = Geiod undulation H = Orthometric height
Hi friend look this link...
you can find it at the end of your total station field user book.
at list at the leica´s field user book.
