I have used MD for about 6 years with just one Bank checking acct, Chase Bank. I now need to add a new Bank Acct, Wells Fargo Checking, along with unique categories for the Wells Fargo acct. I will continue to use Chase Bank as well. However, all of the categories (and their balances) from the Chase acct are copied over to the Wells Fargo acct. I need very different categories for Wells Fargo and starting with 0 balances. How can I achieve this? Do I need to create an entirely new MD file?

I am using MD version 2017.10 (1706) on Windows 10 PC

    Categories are on a global basic across all accounts in the data set, there is no way of limiting categories to one account in the data set.
