Scenario Example

  1. Use the Optional Tables Spreadsheet Add-in to build a detailed bottom-up budget at the level you need (e.g. Customer & Item rather than just GL level). Store it in an Optional Table 'Infoset' within the Sage 300 database.
  2. Pull both the Optional Tables budget data and Sage 300 actual sales data into an Info-Explorer cube. Perform slice and dice analysis.
  3. Within the cube, make a top-down budget adjustment, using a spread formula to apply the change to Customer and Item budgets.
  4. Use Info-Explorer’s write-back feature to update both the Sage 300 GL budget and the Optional Tables detailed budget fields.
