Updated: March 28, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

At the end of the year, you can transfer any remaining budget amounts for multiyear projects to future years. You can also create budget register details for those amounts in the associated general ledger accounts.

We recommend that you review and analyze the remaining budget amounts before you process them.

Complete the following steps if you want to review the year-end budget amounts for projects, but you are not ready to carry the amounts forward.

  1. Click Project management and accounting > Periodic > Budgets > Carry forward budgets.

  2. In the Project budget carry-forward process form, in the Year-end option group, clear the Carry forward remaining project budget amounts check box.

  3. In the Project parameters group, in the Project budget year field, select the beginning of the fiscal year for which you want to view the remaining budget amounts.

  4. In the General ledger group, in the Opening fiscal year field, select the beginning of the fiscal year for which you want to view the remaining budget amounts for the projects.

  5. In the Copy from/to group, complete the following steps:

    1. In the From forecast model field, select the forecast model that is associated with the remaining budget amounts that you want to review for the projects.

    2. If you want to include, among the projects that are displayed in the pane at the bottom of the form, projects that have no remaining budget amounts, but that meet the other criteria that you select, select the Show zero remaining check box.

  6. Above the pane at the bottom of the form, click Retrieve all budgets to load all budgets that match the criteria that you selected.

    NoteNote

    If you prefer to design a database query that loads a specific set of budgets into the pane, click Retrieve selected budgets.

  7. To see more information about a specific line in the pane, select the line, and then click View budget details or View accounts.

When you process your remaining budget amounts, you can decide whether you want to create transactions in the general ledger for the amounts that you carry forward. If you do not want to create general ledger transactions, complete the steps in the first procedure in this section. If you do want to create general ledger transactions, complete the steps in the second procedure.

NoteNote

Budget amounts that are carried forward are transferred to the forecast model that is selected as the carry-forward forecast model in the Forecast models form.

  1. Click Project management and accounting > Periodic > Budgets > Carry forward budgets.

  2. In the Project budget carry-forward process form, in the Year-end option group, select the Carry forward remaining project budget amounts check box.

  3. In the Project parameters group, in the Project budget year field, select the beginning of the fiscal year for which you want to view the remaining budget amounts.

  4. In the Copy from/to group, complete the following steps:

    1. In the From forecast model field, select the project budget forecast model that is associated with the remaining budget amounts that you want to transfer for the projects.

    2. If you want to include, among the projects that are displayed in the pane at the bottom of the form, projects that have no remaining budget amounts, but that meet the other criteria that you select, select the Show zero remaining check box.

  5. Above the pane at the bottom of the form, click Retrieve all budgets to load all budgets that match the criteria that you selected.

    NoteNote

    If you prefer to design a database query that loads a specific set of project budgets into the pane, click Retrieve selected budgets.

  6. For each project that you want to process, select the check box at the beginning of the line for the project.

    TipTip

    To select all or almost all of the projects in the pane, select the check box in the upper-left corner of the pane. All of the projects in the pane are selected. For each project that you want to exclude from processing, you can then clear the check box at the beginning of the line for the project.

  7. Click Process to transfer the remaining budget amounts for the selected projects to the selected fiscal year.

  1. Click Project management and accounting > Periodic > Budgets > Carry forward budgets.

  2. In the Project budget carry-forward process form, in the Year-end option group, select both the Carry forward remaining project budget amounts check box and the Create budget register entries in general ledger check box.

  3. In the Project parameters group, complete the following steps:

    1. In the Project budget year field, select the beginning of the fiscal year for which you want to view the remaining budget amounts.

    3. To use the project's sales currency for the general ledger transactions that are created when you transfer the budget amounts for the projects, select the Transfer sales currency check box. If you clear this check box, the transactions use the accounting currency.

    4. If you want to include, among the projects that are displayed in the pane at the bottom of the form, projects that have no remaining budget amounts, but that meet the other criteria that you select, select the Show zero remaining check box.

  6. Above the pane at the bottom of the form, click Retrieve all budgets to load all budgets that match the criteria that you selected.

    NoteNote

    If you prefer to design a database query that loads a specific set of project budgets into the pane, click Retrieve selected budgets.
