Classification Codes, Working with Budget Types

Return To The Knowledge Base

Budgets can be classified using budget types. Budget Types are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common budget types to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any budget type by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.

 
 
 

This will bring you into the full listing of all customizable classification codes that are within Argenta. From here you will choose "Budget Types."

 

 
 

This will bring you into the full listing of your budget types. Next you will choose "Add New."

 

 

 

This will open a screen for you to add a new budget type.

 
 

 

 

Choose a name for your type and click "Add This Classification Code" to add this new type to your list.

 

View The Total Number Of Records
Above the list is a records total that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list.

Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta has an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Remove A Category/Type

In the budget type list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove the budget type from Argenta. Budget types that are in use, cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the budget type because it has been used to classify a Budget. If you still want to delete it, you can find the budgets associated with it by filtering the budget list, reclassifying all associated budgets, then trying again to delete it.
