Importing A Budget From A Previous Revision In File Manager

Occasionally, the current version of a file may not have all the budgets that were previously created. This may be due to someone who has access to the file deleting previous budgets and worksheets from the list showing.

When budgeting, we recommend making a note on the revision once it has backed up in File Manager so you can locate the finished budget in a previous revision and import it into the live file if necessary.

To Import A Budget From A Previous Revision

  1. Click on the file from the list in File Manager.

  13. Any full budgets associated with that file will be listed in the box below. Select the one you wish to import by clicking on it. Click on the Code handling option you wish to use.  
    • Use Budget Alternate Codes: This option takes some preparation and is recommended if regular imports are made from the same file and the two code lists are different. E.g. You are importing the quick budget produced by your consultant using his/her code list. You will be asked to select a code from the list if an alternate code can not be found.
    • Use Matching Code Name If Any: This is the default and should be used if the code list from the source and destination files are the same or similar. Eg. You are importing the quick budget produced by your consultant using your code list.  You will be asked to select a code from the list if a matching code can not be found.
    • Select Destination Code During Import: This option is not recommended as it is the most time-consuming. Every time a code not encountered before during this import is imported you will be asked to select a code from the list.
