Budget report is not logical
The budget reports have 2 columns, BUDGET and ACTUAL and one needs to see ALL ACTUAL values for all the nominals in order to enable good financial control. In other words, the budget report should always show all the actual balances and the bottom line in the ACTUAL COLUMN in the budget reports, should be the same as the Profit and Loss report. However, in SAP Budget reports, if the budget is NOT SET for a particular Nominal, then NO actual figures are reported in the Budget report. This is incorrect since one can have a scenario where the budget is Zero (no budget is set) but we actually spent money against this Nominal. In the current SAP logic, these expenses will not be shown at all in the budget reports.
My conclusion is that SAP logic is not workable since all actuals should be shown, even if one has not set a budget against a particular nominal.
I wonder if anybody has a solution for this? Maybe there is a way to show all Actual values even if the budget for a nominal is not set - please note that I have all the nominals enabled for budget and this should be sufficient to allow SAP to show the relevant actual figures.
