How can I see remaining budget after financial actuals have been recorded?

The Chart BFA command in the Financial module can chart and report Actuals and Budget for Total Cost (or any other value summary type). The chart selection dialog has an option to calculate and chart cumulative values.  pic1

The chart shows values from the current financial assignments summarized by project. If you want to chart reported labor actuals, use the Post Labor Actuals right click command on the Financial Detail sheet before charting.
