Good morning: I have a standard report which I run at the end of each month which shows me how the finances are going. Hitherto, if there was an amount there which looked dubious to me, I could drill down and see what that number represents (I might have miscoded - or just plain forgotten about something).

Have you made any changes to the reporting programs?

Cheers

Mike

    I believe point 3 of the Build 1900 change log is what yo are referring to.

        • Change logging for innocuous OFX tag handling to sound less scary
        • Date changes on mobile transactions will change both normal and tax dates
        • No more drilling down into category registers - it just ends in tears. We'll come up with a better interface.

    Thanks, Derek: I’d not seen the Build 1900 change log - where /how do I find it?

    As to point 3, the only time it’s ended in tears have been when either of us has made a purchase and then forgotten all about it (or then just decided not to mention it to the the other one)! Although, having said that, I have to say the more usual cause has been me miscoding something.

    Thanks again

    Regards

    I believe what Sean is referring to there is that people would drill down into the transactions, and if it is an Income and Expense type report they would end up in the category register and would treat it and make changes as if it was an account register.

    Doing that can get ugly very quickly if certain field are changed, to the point when the solution is to restore from backup.
