I tried the same thing – Begin 000 00,00 and End Dec 31,07, Type Budget. WHen you enter an amount it all get’s lumped into the last month of ’07.
The fun starts if you then change the Begin date to January 1,07 and then edit the 1,200.00 to 0.00. You end up with Jan – Nov all set to -100.00, and Dec set to 1,100.00
It’s perfectly logical that it would do this (evenly apply the -1,200.00 to each month of the year), but you can tie yourself up in knots unless you know how to use the History view to clean things up.
