    ELSE
    BudgetPct := "Net Change" / "Budgeted Amount" * 100;
    ...
    Replacement code
    ...
    CALCFIELDS("Net Change","Budgeted Amount");

    // Add the following lines.
    IF "Net Change" >= 0 THEN BEGIN
    "Debit Amount" := "Net Change";
    "Credit Amount" := 0;
    END ELSE BEGIN
    "Debit Amount" := 0;
    "Credit Amount" := -"Net Change";
    END;
    IF "Budgeted Amount" >= 0 THEN BEGIN
