To export a budget (PDF or EXCEL), start by pressing the Export button in the left-hand side menu.

Here's how to proceed in the Export menu:

1- REPORTS: Select which type of report you want to export (Profit and Loss, Cash Flow, Balance Sheet, Ratio, and Cost & Funding).

2- DATA SET: Select which budget/scenario to use.

3- STARTING: Select when your report date starts.

4- ENDING: Select when your report date ends.

5- HISTORICAL: Select up to when you want to include your historical past in your budget reports. 

6- DISPLAY: Select whether you want your report to be displayed annually (the file size will be smaller), or on a monthly basis (can take an extra minute to generate due to the heavy data size). 

7- DETAIL LEVEL: Select the amount of detail you want your report to have:

  •     Overview: A summary.
  •     Standard: A basic budget with a standard amount of detail.
  •     Full: A complete report with as much detail as possible.

8- ADD A REPORT: Click here to add additional reports to your exported budget (Profit and Loss, Cash Flow, Balance Sheet, Ratio, and Cost & Funding).

Producing a complete Budget

To produce a complete budget which includes all financial reports (Profit and Loss, Cash Flow, Balance Sheet, Ratio, and Cost & Funding). Follow the steps below:


1- Click on the blue button "Add a report" 2 more times to add "Ratio" and "Cost & Funding".

2- Select each distinct report in the drop down menu.

3- Modify the report to fit your needs (date range, historical, display, level of detail, etc.).

4- We recommend using full detail level (A complete report with as much detail as possible).

5- Generate your PDF/Excel file.


NOTE The generation of the document may take some time to generate, depending on the size and level of detail (months or years) of the budget you are exporting.

When you print or export your financial projections as a PDF or Excel, comments will not be visible. 

For a smaller PDF file, try exporting your statements as "Years" and not "Months". The information will be the same, only condensed. 


NOTE When you export your budget as an Excel file, you are pulling just the numbers. This means that there are no formulas or equations in your Excel spread sheet, simply the numbers from Budgeto.

Want to analyze and compare your numbers in Excel? We have developed an Excel template for a quick and easy monthly analysis! See file attached at the bottom of this article: 

Also, be sure to check our our new Real vs Budget comparison module! For more information, please check out the Knowledge Base article below:

Using automatic synchronization (import from an online accounting software), or by manually entering your Historical Data, you are able to import your monthly actual results into Budgeto, adjust your budget for the current year (up to 5 years), export your adjusted budget in Excel and compare your actual vs. budget in a few minutes every month!  Please note that this template needs to be customized to your own settings. Advance Excel skills are needed.

"There is an error with my Excel exportation!" An error can occur with certain computers (depending on the settings within the Excel application found on the computer). When you have a green corner in a given cell (top left), it means that there is an error. Select the problematic cells (all of them), then click on the yellow warning button (!) and then click on "Convert to Number". The issue should be resolved.
