This function returns the budget of a GL account or TFR line number for a given month and year. The day portion of the date is ignored.

When budget numbers are entered in the GL they are entered for the current month only. However, for income and expense accounts, the Budget function returns the cumulative year-to-date budget number. For example, if an income account had a constant monthly budget of $10,000 per month, the Budget function would return $40,000 for the April budget.
