Budget item breakdowns The total cost in a budget plan is divided into smaller units called breakdowns. The breakdowns are taken from the plan's Unit Cost in Local Currency field. After the plan is promoted to a forecast, these values are used to calculate the value in the forecast's Amount field. You can override this amount in the budget item breakdown record with a new amount of your own. The application automatically calculates budget plan breakdowns when you save the budget item. Note: Budget item breakdowns support all fiscal calendar types, including the new types provided with the Helsinki release. See Fiscal calendars for more information.
