Straightforward way to combine Budget Trends/Reports
I (perhaps) unwisely made fresh starts/new budgets over my time using YNAB. I was hoping to compare my spending pre and post COVID but can only see the charts for each individual budget, some of which are only a couple of months.
I have mainly used the same category groups and categories across the different budgets so comparing wouldn't be too difficult. I've tried exporting each budget to a csv, but the files are quite unwieldy and I wouldn't know where to start with aggregating the spending data into charts.
Has anyone got a straightforward template/Google Sheet for turning YNAB transaction data into charts? Alternatively, is there a way to stitch several YNAB Reports into one - even if the comparisons aren't exact it would be good to see how categories have evolved since I started using the system.
Hi Forest Green Hammerhead !
Did you export the actual budgets? If so, I'd try exporting the reports instead. This should give you a better format to compare that data.
If you don't want to export the data, you can open YNAB in two separate internet tabs or windows and compare the budgets side-by-side that way.
Let me know if you have any questions about that! :)
