I have added a budget table to be used as part of the report.  I need to add the budget column to the report on the database.  I attach a replica of the report and how it should look like.

Thanks

First the budget tables  need to  be combined into the same table with a field for fiscal year just like you did in the  MTD table.

Are the budge amounts per month (period)  or a total for the year? I would assume by the name is is a budgeted amount for the year. Is that correct?

The exact same method I used for combining  the MTD and YTD will apply to adding the budget amounts.

What part is giving you troubles in learning to do this yourself?

Yes its for the year.  I got into trouble because I did a join.  Now that you mentioned I will combine it into the same table.  That will work then.

Thanks a lot.

Here is what I have so far:

SELECT mtd.[Fiscal Year], mtd.COSTCTR, mtd.CATEGORY, Sum(IIf([Month_id]=[EnterPeriod],[Amount],0)) AS CurMTD, Sum(IIf([Month_id]<=[EnterPeriod],[Amount],0)) AS CurYTD, qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.MTD AS PrevYrMTD, qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.YTD AS PrevYrYTD, mtd.segment, mtd.Budget
FROM mtd LEFT JOIN qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata ON (mtd.CATEGORY = qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.CATEGORY) AND (mtd.COSTCTR = qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.COSTCTR)
GROUP BY mtd.[Fiscal Year], mtd.COSTCTR, mtd.CATEGORY, qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.MTD, qryMTDYTDCostCTRCatPrevYear_prevyeardata.YTD, mtd.segment, mtd.Budget
HAVING (((mtd.[Fiscal Year])=[EnterFiscalYear]) AND ((mtd.COSTCTR)="7601"));


The trouble I am having is this: see the highlighted on the attached, the report is kind of repeating itself when I add the budget and the segment.

Thanks

Did you combine the two budget tables into a single budget table with a field for fiscal year?

I take it back.  What I did was to add the two budget tables into the MTD with a fiscal year.
The budget file in excel format is attached.

It would help if you posted your current database so I can see what you have done with the tables.

Hitechcoach,

I hate to bring this out of the archives.  My queries produce double entries when I run them, I dont know if its my join or what not.  I will send you the data in due course, probably this evening.  

Thanks

Is there anyway, you can use these fields StartPerioddate and EndPerioddate in the Budget, MTD and Ytd formulas for me.  I decided to use dates instead in the Period parameter.  The Period id does not work with my data.

Thanks
