    I would suggest looking at the knowledge base articles on the topic:

    Hi Steven,

    There are two budget formats available within Moneydance - the 'Newer' format, and the 'Older Mixed Interval' format. You can find details of both budget types in this section of the knowledge base.

    Using the 'Newer' format, (as seen here), you'll pick one time internal - weekly, monthly etc. All categories in the file will be included in this budget, displayed on the left. You'll see columns that display the budget periods - e.g. last month, this month, next month.
    Within this you'll see two columns of numbers. The left number is the amount (either income or expenses) currently assigned to the category, for the designated period. The right number is the amount you have budgeted for the category, it'll be 0 if you haven't entered a budget amount.

    To use the 'Mixed Interval' format, (as seen here), navigate to Tools --> Budget Manager. Select 'New' and choose the Period as 'Mixed Interval (old style)'.
    In the main window, select the 'Edit' button at the top right of the screen. This will open the edit budget window. This budget will start with no categories assigned, and you can choose which categories to include. These budget items can have different time intervals, e.g. weekly, monthly etc.
