Viewing Project Budget Information in Primavera P6

How to view budget information in Primavera? Here are the commonly used columns in Primavera to view different budget information. The budget information will help you plan the project within the approved project budget and it will also tell how much of the budget has been approved, distributed through projects in EPS or WBS Elements in the WBS Structure.

Original Budget: Initial budget allocated (Edit in column or in Budget Log tab - the very first budget)

Current Budget: Current budget (Original budget +/- what is defined in Budget Log)

Proposed Budget: Proposed new budget after budget amendments (Edited in Budget Log Tab - define the budget as logs)

Distributed Current Budget: Budget distributed down through the EPS structure (Budget defined in Original Budget field/column, rolled up to top.  Shows total rolled up value on the top level EPS/WBS Element only)

Unallocated Budget: Budget left that has not been distributed down through the EPS structure (Current Budget - Distributed Current Budget)

These budget columns can be opened in both Project window and WBS window to view budget at the project and WBS level.
