Categorise your expenses
Some categories, such as Salary, may need to be broken down into the subcategories.
In order to do this, create a Breakdown name (such as Salary) and input the % of each category you want the category broken down into. Once this is done, return to the mapping table, and map any categories you want to be broken down to the new Breakdown category.
