Budgets

I have set up budgets and several of the accounts have default 0's in them (in previous years, they've had an amount, but this year, we've added new accounts and no longer need them).  I have deleted the 0's, saved the budget and exited but when I go back in, the 0's are back.  And when I run the budget overview report, they show up as 0's.  Any ideas how to make them go away?  I have to end up downloading the report to Excel and then hide the rows.

Your issues with setting up budgets end here, @PamB-SMA.

 

The accounts with a zero amount can never be removed upon setting up a budget since QuickBooks wanting you to fill in the data or not. You may want to customize the Budget Overview report to remove all the zero amount. Here's how:

 

  1. Open and run the Budget Overview report.
  2. In the report window, click the Customize Report button.1.PNG
  3. From the Display tab, select Advanced.2.PNG
  4. In the Advanced Options window, select the Non-zero option from the Display Rows and Display Columns section.
  5. Click OK twice.3.PNG

Once done, the report will only show you the accounts with amounts.

Greetings, @PamB-SMA.

 

I'm back to check if you were able to remove all the zero amount from the Budget Overview report after following the steps I shared. I can provide further assistance if you need more help.

 

Have a great day and take care always!

Sorry for delay in replying ... got sidetracked on other projects!   That answer was exactly what I needed.  I have saved budget reports and so went in and adjusted them with the Non-Zero and it worked perfect!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
