How do I set up a simple comparison budget

Hi Folks,

I would like to set up a budget in MD whereby I set the amount budgeted for each category each month (NOT letting MD decide based on past expenses), then after each month compare the actuals to the budgeted amounts.

Can this be done?

    just a user,

    Yes you can do that, but I recommend setting your budget up with the Mixed Interval (Old Style) period. It will allow the most flexibility and allows budget amounts to continue indefinitely from month to month unless you limit the budget periods.
