I think I need to create a new column set but don’t know how to set up the formula so that in one single report I can view an actual vs budget. Also, not sure if I am able to do this in the ARM reports?

@mruiz can you try this:

on the data source section for the column set, you’ll want to select the Budget ledger and amount type would be ending balance.  would that give you the numbers you are looking for?

Hello @mruiz ,

We can compare Actual to Budget on a period by period basis, or on a YTD Basis using ARM reports.  Below I show a Period Budget vs. Actual column set. For a YTD report, change Amount Type from Turnover to Ending Balance in the Data Source for both columns B and C.

I recommend copying your P & L column set, as a start. Good luck!
