Please keep in mind that the Fixed Percentage option, as well as any percentage option in the budget, relies on the selection of at least 1 or more budget line items, so that the calculation can be completed successfully. At the present time our importing system does not have the logic or capability to import this type of calculation. I can make a couple of suggestion as work arounds:
- The percentage calculations can be completed in an outside program such as excel and then the amounts can be imported using the By Period Option
- If the calculation exist in a prior year you can copy the budget from a prior year, lock the line items (Type and Values) that used the Fixed Percentage Calculation, and then import the remaining items that are unlocked. This method does require that the percentage calculations are set-up manually 1 time with-in the application, however if the percentage amount are consistent from year to year this will help prevent reassigning the line items associated to the percentage.
If our support team or myself can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let us know.
