Budget Amounts Do Not Show Up!



  • 1. Bill Pay and Bank Account
    After many trials and tribulations, I am finally at a point in Money 2005 where I can start to think about the finer points of the program. I am still confused by the relationship between my MSN Bill Pay account and my regular banking account. Once something gets sent from Bill Pay, and the check gets depositied in my bank account, it shows up in my bank account register. However, it also shows up in my Bill Pay account as a negative sum. My question is: How to get these two disparate pieces of information to work together. Perhaps I'm missing something (this is probably the sort of thing that a "manual" would have been helpful for). -- cheers, Tom G
  • 2. Unable to use manage online services
    Yall, This issue is plaguing me for a while already. It happens that I installed Money 2005 SB and now I am unable to manage online services. When I try to go to set up online services, I chose credit card, and right after I am presented with a red font message saying To set up your accounts, you must be online. Please close Money, and then sign in to your file. When you sign in, make sure the Work offline box is cleared. The work offline is not set at File Menu so I am at a loss here. In addition, if I try to alter my passport at Password Manager I am presented with a message saying that he sign-in information could not be verified. Please try again laterbut this never works. Yes I am online, my passport works well!! I have even tried to create a new account but get a similar message as above and my new account is ffline for all purposes!!! Any help is appreciated.

  • 3. online statement download problem in money 2000
    Hello I own Money 2000 deluxe. My financial institution informed me that they changed the format of the downloaded file to support latest version of money. They told me that MSFT has a patch that will allow older versions of money to download and use new file format. Anyone knows weather this is true and weather you would know the download link to the patch? Thanks Sasha
  • 4. Any bundles available for M05 w/TaxCut and Norton?
    I just googled and found a CompUSA bundle that expired yesterday (my timing is as good as ever...). I'm going to buy TaxCut anyway, and if I can get a deal on M05 at the same time, that would be a good idea. Can anyone reply w/a pointer to any deals currently available? Thanks!
  • 5. Gains or Returns
    It seems that Money 2005 incorrectly uses the word gains for returns. For example, it includes divendends in the total unrealized/realized Gains. Gains should just be the difference between the cost and the sale. The return should include the total change in value of a portfolio (realized/unrealized gains and dividends). Why is this?

Budget Amounts Do Not Show Up!

My entered budget amounts do not show up correctly for instance I enter $75 
for gas and it shows up as 68.99.  Why is this and what can I do to make it 
appear the way I entered it?

I've had the same problem. It appears that it's  a problem unique to 
February, due to the short month. Microsoft has acknowledge to me that it's  
a problem, but hasn't responded to my questions about how it's going to be 
fixed. Money is pretty much useless this month.

1.Budget Amount on Report does not agree with amount entered in Budget

I am using Money 2003.  Have several years of trnsactions 
and am just now trying to do a budget.  I manually 
entered a budget for 2004.  I entered a monthly net 
income budget of $xxxx.  When I view the monthly budget 
report for January it has added $1,800 to the $xxxx I had 
entered.  The actual amount in the report is correct just 
the budgetted amount is out of wack.  The report says I 
have an $1,800 difference between budget and actual.  
When viewing the yearly budget report I see this error is 
only in January the remaining 11 months are OK.  Of 
course the annual totals are off by $1,800 too.  Does 
anyone know what could be causing this?  By the way it is 
happening on an expense category as well.  It shows an 
extra $xxxx in debt without a subcategory that only shows 
upin January.
Thanks in advance.

2.Report Not Showing Full Budget Amount


My issue is that the budget amount is not reported for the full amount in 
the income statement report even when I set the end date for the last day of 
the month.  The budget amount appears to be prorated based upon the % of the 
month that is complete.

For example, if the budgeted amount is $100 for a month, the report date is 
set for the last day of the month, and it is the 15th, $50 will appear in the 
budgeted line item of the report.

How do I get the income statement report to show the full amount?


3.Budget Amounts on reports disagree with amounts set in budget

I have Money 2003 and am trying to use budgetting for the first time.
First, I tried autobudget but didn't like all the derived budget amounts.
Some looked really out of wack but I didn't try tracing them all to the
source transactions.  Then I manually created a budget.  It spans all of
2004.  I then viewed the monthly report for January and noticed that the
budgeted amount for income was $1,800 greater than what I had entered for
the monthly income.  My income budgetting is very simple in that I only
enter the net income amounts as in $xxxx per month.  I then viewed the
annual budget report and it looks like this extra $1,800 is only in January.
Something similar is happening on the expense side.  I entered exact monthly
budget amount to subcategories and when I view the monthly report it shows a
$16,000 budget amount in January.  I have no idea where these extra income
and expenses are coming from in January.  Please help me trace this problem
down.  Where are these budget amounts coming from and how do I get rid of

Thanks in advance,

4.Budget item not showing as 'budgeted' in Monthly Budget Report

When I run my "Monthly Budget" report, it is showing "Bills:Electricity" 
actual dollars of $212, and budgeted is $0.  However, when I go to the 
budget, my regularly scheduled utility bill is clearly shown as budgeted at 
$225/month under the Bills:Electricity category, under the "Utilities" 
budget group.

Why isn't the $225 showing up on the budget report in the budgeted column??


5.Budgeted column shows double amount , please help!!

I have a budget setup since the first of the year.  On the 
Budget section, I see where I have columns for actual, 
budget, and difference.  For some reason, my truck payment 
shows up with a double amount under "budgeted", under 
actual is the actual monthly payment, and of course under 
difference is the other payment.  I am thinking that this 
is throwing my cash flow off since the software thinks I 
have budgeted more than I paid.  This payment is setup 
under the bills section as a recurring payment.  I have 
another monthly payment that is doing the same thing to me 
and can't figure out where to get the amount under the 
budgeted column down to showing only a single payment.  
All the others that I have setup are correct, just these 

Any help would be appreciated.  I've looked in the on-line 
help wothout success.  Tried deleting the recurring 
payment and setting it back up again.  Even saw where two 
payments were credited in the same month so I deleted one 
and put it in the month prior, where it should have beeen 
recorded in the first place.  I think under options I had 
selected that Money records the entry in the register when 
it is processed by the bank. (the payee held onto the 
check and deposited two in the same month...)
