About the Year-to-Date Comparison Report Spreadsheet
This Year to Date Comparison sheet provides budget versus actual analysis for the year-to-date period. The sheet is very simple and easy to use. It works for the current year.
The sheet summarizes in your actual Transactions by Category and Group from the Transactions sheet for the year-to-date period.
The sheet works best if you are using a Category sheet that includes budgets by month. The Foundation template includes this. If you don’t have a Category sheet with budgets by month starting in Jan of this year, then you won’t have any YTD Budget data.
If a category or group doesn’t have an actual amount or a budget amount, it won’t appear in the report. Categories that are set to Hide won’t appear either.
