What is the difference between Budget Actual based and Work Plan Actual

HI ,

Can we have Budget Actual cost being auto calculated based on staffing profile ACTUALS . We are filling Actuals in the Staffing profile and we do not have work plan on the project. The budget is sync with staffing profile and we do not have time management linked. Is that we can get Planned cost from SP and Actuals from Workplan. or Budget actuals can be work pan based and SP based . if what is the diff?

Thanks,
Phani

Good Day.
In SP setting set synk with budget and select budget. Add position in SP and link position with budget line in 2-b tab on position.

That's fine!!...My question is can we have budget ACTUAL roll up with SP actual based effort??. AS we do not want the work plan for our project. we want to have actual cost on budget being calculated based on actual on staffing profile . IS that possible/updated byy budget services in PPM7.1?. what does it happens ?
