Reverse Actual and Budget Columns in Budget Reports

user17881 Member ✭✭
When viewing budgets within Quicken Deluxe for Windows (using the PLANNING tab, sub-tab BUDGETS and then requesting Annual View > Details), Quicken displays the BUDGET column first, then the ACTUAL column, and finally the BALANCE (variance) column. This is how I prefer to see budget reporting.

But when producing a budget REPORT in a pop-up window, Quicken shows ACTUAL column first, and then BUDGET.

I would like the option of having the REPORT show Budget in first column. Perhaps this could be user option - select BUDGET or ACTUAL as first column for each month (or other period).

A search of the internet shows that other accounting software programs go both ways.
