It would be extremely helpful if we had the ability to apply a distribution code to each line item when creating a budget worksheet. Most of our budgeted expenses must be spread/allocated over multiple programs/funds. If we could simply apply a distribution code to each line item we would not need to develop our budget in Excel and import into MIP. Because of this lack, we are being forced to look outside MIP for a budget solution.
It would make our budgeting process much more responsive to management inquiries. We would be able to reverse our involvement with Excel from importing, a clumsy process, to exporting for customized reporting.
