Show/Hide Hidden Text

The Budget/Latest/Actual tab displays the budget per financial period for accounts selected on the Viewing Options tab.  Multiple options are provided on this screen where you can select to include or exclude the approved and/or latest amounts and whether the display should stop at the current financial period or display all financial periods for the selected financial year.  The option Hide Zero Budgets will totally remove accounts from the grid where neither an approved or latest budget exists.


The actual account balance is dynamically displayed in real-time and a detailed display of the journals responsible for the current actual amount displayed for an account/financial period can be viewed by clicking the Actual column and then clicking the Detail Journal Entries tab.  Although the approved budgets for cost centre accounts will normally be maintained by the responsible cost centre manager, as will be done by the divisional manager or accountant for divisional accounts, the Division rules as defined via the Division screen, allows for alternate settings.


On this tab the following fields can be viewed:



The Apply button is enabled when a value is changed, and Enter is clicked.


The totals in the grid will be updated and the  database will be updated.


It is populated with all budget, latest, pre-commitment, commitment, actual, and balance-to-date values for the selected accounts.
