I set a category "Salary" under personal income, but it does not show under the budget.

Last year when I set up my budget, salary under personal income was not showing up under the budget part. I could not figure out why. I just purchased the 2019 version and when I tried to set up my 2020 budget, "salary" did not show up in the budget again. Anyone know why? Nothing is hidden.

    If you click on the "Manage Budget Categories" button, is the Salary Category ticked as being included?

    It is. I put a check mark next to it.

    If you run a simple Spending Report - all Accounts, all Categories - are you seeing dollars in the Salary Category? 
    Are you saying that when you click on Planning > Budgets you do see dollar amounts for each month across the Salary Category, but the budgeted amounts are not showing up when you do Reports > Spending > Current Budget?  Exactly what are you looking at when you think you should be seeing salary dollars, but don't?

    By any chance is your salary depositing into an account other than the account you use for expenses?    Quicken added a "select accounts" feature recently.  So if you select a category that is in an account that is NOT selected, your data will be missing.  Find the "select accounts" feature under "Budget Actions.

    Do you have a category of Net Salary? I switched from the Salary category to Net Salary and that resolved the problem of actual amounts not showing in the budget.
