The Budgets in Essentials are useless unless we can actually print them. I dont want to  have to run everything through CSV then have to import back to MYOB, its time consuming . We are trying to get a true cashflow budget from our clients figures. You have to be quite handy at formulas in excel to make anything work. Even when you are quite handy with formulas it is extremely time consuming to have to formulate the end of Months GST figures and bank balances. The functionality of the Budget is so underwhelming. You own Banklink I suggest you take a look at the budgets from Banklink and start again.

 have to run two reports for the relevant periods, download to excel and run concatenation or look up formulas to line up the accounts correctly.  It seems extraordinary that such a large and popular software package such as MYOB does not have such a basic function.  I am considering other software options because of this and a few other issues (eg. no standing journal facility).
