This program is designed to enable you to create and maintain annual files containing estimated monthly expenditures and incomes. The file is saved on tape for later retrieval each month to allow replacement of forecast amounts with actual amounts.
You may choose the starting month of the budget year, and a ‘Rolling Budget' can be produced to allow you to ‘see' 12 months ahead at any time. Individual inputs cannot exceed £9999.99.
At the outset of the program you are given the extra option of using a printer, since printed displays can be obtained of monthly results and year-end totals. However, the addition of a printer is not essential as monthly displays can be easily viewed on the screen. Similarly, for rapid visual checks of your estimated annual household budget a ‘barchart' option can be chosen. This option is attainable for viewing only and can not be used in conjunction with a printer.
A number of ‘help pages' are available throughout the course of the program. To obtain access to the information that they offer, you must key [H]. Return to the main program from these ‘Help' pages pages by pressing any key.
