How do I split a transaction? For example, if I go to the grocery store and pay with a credit card, not ALL purchases are groceries -- some might be household goods, such as laundry soap. So far, I haven't found a way to split a transaction into different categories.

    Hi Linda,
    Thank you for contacting Moneydance support.

    To split a transaction into several categories, create a new transaction or double click a transaction to edit it, then select the Category field to open the Category drop-down menu and click the “Split” button at the top (or press ⌘-L or Ctrl + L on your keyboard), as outlined in this article of the Knowledge Base.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support
