    Joining this thread for a similar yet more elementary question.... I ran my first budget (thank you both for your support BTW) and now i ran my first report. The budgeted amount for some of the categories in the report do not match what I have in quicken desktop, actual spend is wrong, and the budget is reflecting what I have spent so far and actual column is showing my budget (reverse). There are so many things wrong I have to be the culprit some how. Thank you!

    @jimredsox unfortunately there are several inconsistencies between what is shown in the Budget Graph View, Budget Annual View, and Budget Reports, and I think this is one of them.

    In the Budget Views you can select this option:
    Budget Actions -> View Options -> Include reminders

    What that does is use the future reminders as if they are future "actuals".
    The budget reports on the other hands do not include reminders for the future "actuals".

    This might be the difference.  If that isn't the problem I suggest that you start another question where people can dig into more details instead on this thread, which is for a different problem.

    @jimredsox   It looks like the moderators have moved your question here.  Check to see if including the reminders are the problem.  If not if you can include some screenshots that might help people figure out what is going on.
