Job Budget Reports

Hi Everyone

I am having a HUGE problem here and have no idea how to get around this.


I use job codes (about 20 in total) when I do the budgets (I use job budgets) I consolidate everything but the budget is just too many pages for our board to read - they wanted something much more simple which I totally understand.


I have tried changing the levels but level one is not enough information and even level 2 is too much information.


so what I am really after is a budget report of my header chart of accounts (if that makes sense) so I would like the budget to report on Labour expenses (rather than wages, wage subsidy and super) and Retail income (rather than shop 1 income, shop 2 income) and so on.... I hope this makes sense.


I really just want the header chart of accounts rather than all the accounts under the header - does anyone at all know how to do this??? Please help me


thanks in advance

Re: Job Budget Reports



Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find plenty of useful information.


With Reporting Levels you set these when you create your Chart of Accounts.

Level 1 is always just the Main sections of the Chart of Accounts; Assets, Liabilities, Equity, Income, Cost Of Goods, Sales, Other Income and Other Expenses.

Level 2 is all the accounts that sit one level down from the Main section headers. These can be either Header or Detail accounts.

Level 3 is the next level down and again can be either Header or Detail accounts and finally level 4 will only be Detail accounts.

If you are looking for a Report on just your Header accounts you need to go through your Chart of Accounts and make sure that all Header accounts you want to report on are level 2 and no Detail accounts are level 2.

Once you have dpne this you will be able to get the report you want.


If my response to your query and has helped, please mark my post as a solution to help others in the future.
