Can you add additional Titles to the sidebar, right now there is Bank, Credit Card, Loan, Investments, etc. I have a few business accounts and I would like to have a title that says "Business" and put all those accounts there.

    just a user - I think you can have ASSETS and LIABILITIES in addition to the ones you mentioned.

    What I do with my business accounts is to name an account like Z - BUSINESS for each of the titles, and then create sub accounts for them...

    . business cc 1
    . business cc 2

    Technically, Z - BUSINESS is a credit card (in this case) and the others are subaccounts, but I just don't put anything into Z - BUSINESS - it becomes a placeholder.

    It is not possible for users to add titles to the side bar.

    The titles displayed are dependent on what you have elected to show. The list of possible headings is:

    Credit Cards
    Expense Categories
    Income Categories
    Graphs & Reports

    DTD, thank you, I was aware of the additional options, I just put etc. and didn't list them all because I was seeking to add an additional one name "Business".

    Can you please explain to me how you created a sub account? I was able to create the Z-Business with nothing under it, but how are you making a sub account please.

    Hi austriah,

    Can you please explain to me how you created a sub account?

    If you don't mind my jumping in here... You simply select 'Z-Banking' from the 'Parent Account' drop-down list in the Properties form of the sub-account(s)

    Thank you, I saw the 'Parent Account' but was leary about changing it because when I first started using Moneydance in the early days I kinda messed stuff up simply by altering the account name.
