Why are budget groups used?


I see that in Budgeting module, budget control rules under Budget control configuration is used to define dimension combination for budget checking. And I see that budget group is used for similar purpose. Can someone tell me what is the exact difference between budget control rules and budget groups?



You can define budget groups to form a budget pool, or a collection of financial dimension values whose budgets will be pooled for a secondary budget check. The financial dimension combinations that are found in the budget control rule are always checked for budget amounts. If a financial dimension combination is also found in a budget group, a second budget check is performed at the budget group level.


Thank you Adam.
