Compensation Budget Expressions

You can create budget expressions that are used to calculate the budgets. A budget expression is a formula that can include any field within the Employee business component including Employee Salary, Employee Job Code, Employee Salary Grade, and so on.

Several standard functions are supported, allowing budget calculations to include arithmetic, Boolean, and conditional operators. For more information on syntax and functions that can be used in budget expressions, see Siebel Tools Online Help, Using Siebel Tools, and Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

NOTE:  If you enter the employee salary in the Job Information section of the employee record using a currency different from the budget currency, Siebel Performance Management converts the employee salary to the budget currency during the calculation of the budget amount. The Employee Salary field must be the first field to appear within the expression for the currency conversion to be successful.
