Budget definitions

A budget definition specifies attributes from the staged general ledger data that can be used by budget keys.

You can create only one budget definition. The attributes that you select from the budget definition determine how all budget keys can be structured. See Account codes for examples.

Budget definitions require a hierarchical structure to the attributes from the staged general ledger data. The top-most attribute is considered the root. When the keys are generated, a value for the root attribute is mandatory.
