Budget - Comparing Budgeted Amounts to Actuals - How Do I?

BikerBear Member ✭✭
Hi Folks,

New to QMac 2019. Have set everything up, just fine. However, I would really like to be able to establish a budget within QMac19 with the following scenario (or similar):

Column 1: List of categories
Column 2: Budgeted Amount (e.g. Food: $250, Vacation: $250, Pet Food: $50, etc.)
Column 3-15: Monthly actuals (Jan -> Dec)

This would allow me to see how my actuals are doing compared to what I have established as the maximum amount, per month, for each of the categories.

Does this make sense? Can it be done? If so, how do I?

    Thanks John! Yes, sorry, I'm on QMac20 (d'oh).

    I have used the Budget module, and it does look fairly straightforward. The only thing I can't seem to find is where I enter the monthly budgeted amounts, so that I can compare the trailing monthly actuals.

    I, too, am focusing on a few spending categories.
