About budget reports and graphs
Quicken provides two types of budget reports: a Current Budget report and an Historical Budget report. Although both reports compare the money you spend and receive during a specific date range with the amounts you've budgeted for that date range, there are slight differences between them.
|Current Budget report||Historical Budget report|
|Calculates the difference between actual and budgeted amounts for each line item using currently assigned values for the budget amounts.||Calculates the difference between the actual and budgeted amounts for each line item using historically assigned values for the budget amounts.|
|Reports on any past date range||Reports on only the years for which the selected budget exists|
To create a budget report and graph
- Click the Planning tab.

How do I display a report for a different budget?
Quicken displays a report and graph of your currently displayed budget by default. If you want to view a report and graph of another budget, after you create the report, click theBudget drop-down menu at the top of the report window, then select the budget you want to create the report or graph for.
