This procedure is used to enter budget transactions in a more automated and faster procedure than the one used during normal entry. This is achieved by defining the design of the panel in advance so that only a minimum of data has to be manually entered for each transaction.
Note that when using the quick entry method, you specify only the total amount and/or quantity and allocation curve to use for each budget transaction. That means you cannot review the allocated budget, as you can when using normal entry.
Start ‘Budget. Open’ (BUS100/B).
Select option 12=‘Quick entry’ for the budget to reach ‘Budget. Quick Entry of Values’ (BUS102/B).
Review the information on the E panel. Which information is displayed and which fields can be used depend on the settings made on the P panel. At the top of the E panel, the budget and its start period are displayed. Below, the five fixed accounting dimensions and their accounting identities are displayed.
Enter a budget transaction by specifying accounting identities for the two variable accounting dimensions and the amount and/or quantity. Also, specify the currency used and the accounting curve.
Return to step 3 to enter more budget transactions or press F3 to exit the program.
