Create an excel spreadsheet similar to the F0902Z1 file - upload the budgets
into this then run the R14110 (Upload/Conversion) in test mode first with
will not populate the F0902 file but you will be able to see if there are
any errors. Then run the procedure in final mode. This will update the
F0902 file.

Thank you.

RE: Budget Uploads


You don't need to offset a budget amount either for a budget upload or for
directly entering dollars into a budget (planning) module. It is not like a
journal entry, it doesn't have to balance, it is only for comparison. And
you shouldn't use a journal entry for entering a budget, a budget amount is
not real money which has to balance. The difference between your revenue
budget amounts and expense budget amounts is what you expect to earn and
that should fall out at the bottom of the budget comparison report.
