When working in Accounts Payable, it's possible to check budgets while entering different records like invoices and requisitions. One of the budget columns appears with "Annual Forecasted Amount"
The Annual Forecasted amount is made up of both posted transactions and unposted transactions. Additionally, if the business rule "Include approved requisition line items when checking budgets" is marked, those will be included as well. In the same way, if "include unapproved requisition line items when checking budgets" is marked, then submitted and requisitions still in the approval process will be included as well.
