I've found an error in generating a customer report for a budget. If you select a custom report, and then ask it to display budgets summarised over the last 3 months, you fill in the custom report pop-up like this:
When i run this, i get a report that has correctly added up all the items in the budget over the last 3 months, but has only compared that against 1 month worh of budget value. As a result, all my budgets look like they have blown their limits, like this:
Please can you check the code, so that when selecting a budget report across 3 months, it multiplies the amount budgeted by three as well!
I get the same error too. I'm using the Windows version (2.5.4 (build 140))
I'd like the ability to compare my expenditure against my budget, by month and by quarter. Can I do that?
What you're request is different from this issue (this issue will be fixed in 2.6 update).
To compare your expenditure against a budget please generate any report by budget (even custom report by budget). These reports include information about overspending budgets. You don't need a report that compares expenses to budgets as report by budgets includes information about actual expenses in budgets.
