I created a new budget for a new client and the budget has the wrong fiscal year. What did I do wrong?

My company has the correct fiscal year. Does the year have to be closed in order for it to pull from the prior year? I want to prepare a budget beginning 10-1-19 but it is pull the 17-18 actual numbers into the budget.
jbroth, did you figure it out? the budget and the wrong fiscal year?
Closing the year won't matter in pulling up prior years' budget, melliard.
When you enter transactions within the fiscal year, then create a budget, the actuals will remain untouched. Even if you added or modified a few transactions, QuickBooks won't retroact.
We can pull up the Profit & Loss Standard report as our basis in preparing the new budget for the next fiscal year. Here's how:
Afterwards, create a new budget and choose the Fiscal Year. Then, Clear the field and enter the amounts from the report.
