I am using MD 2010 on Windows Vista.
The problem manifests on all the report types, but I'll illustrate it with Income and Expenses.

On opening the report all types of all the accounts is shown. If I use edit I can choose to highlight (say) expenses and to choose just one account (say) car:petrol, so that I can isolate my spending on petrol. When I switch back to the report I see that NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Every account and transaction type is still displayed. Changing the dates does work, but I can't isolate a single spending type!

Is this how MD 2010 works or is there a fault?

    (This may sound odd.) Do you see 2 or 3 radio buttons on the Edit dialog for the report? The first is All Accounts. The second is Account Types. The third is Individual Accounts. If you don't see the 3rd button - and I didn't, at first, for that report - make the edit dialog wider. Then the 3rd button is available, select that and you can pick accounts. You can also use None, All above the list. When I expanded the dialog window once, the problem went away, and the dialog now comes up with all 3 buttons visible.

    I have reported the same problem. Even if I select Individual Accounts Chose None to clear all the tics and select one category I still get all categories on the Report Window. Jim Walsh

    Definitely works for me. (MD2010 build 728). Reports, Income & Expenses (the report, not the graph). Edit button, pick Invidual Accounts, click None, and pick one or a few expense or income accounts, click OK. The report shows only the accounts I selected.

    All three radio buttons are visible.

    I did some experimenting and this is what I found:
    With the Individual Accounts RB filled and ALL the accounts checked I got a
    full report. When I used the NONE to deselect all accounts and then checked
    Petrol I still got ALL the accounts. I then manually dechecked all the
    accounts execpt Petrol I got what I wanted i.e. my spending on petrol.
    I then used ALL to check all the accounts but when I displayed the report
    only Petrol was showing i.e. none of the other account showed. I had to move
    to another report type and then back to Income and Expenses to get the full

    Build 728 is a "beta", but posts from the MD staff in these forums indicate they consider it stable enough to use.

    I just switched back to build 723 and duplicated your issue. Very weird behavior, but it looks like it was already fixed in build 728.

    *MD 2010 723 downloaded 20 Dec.* (I downloaded 2010 a week or so ago. I
    uninstalled and reinstalled yesterday to try and fix the report problem)

    Many thanks Kenneth. As you say it seems that the issue has already been sorted in 728. I do not usually go for Beta versions but that is my problem in this case. Jim

    I am sorry for the trouble this has caused. We are currently up to build 730 and this will most likely become the next stable build later tonight.

    Hi Bill,
    I'm sorry, but I don't really understand this email.
    How can I fix the problem that I have reported? Do I have to download an
    update, a new version of MD or what??

    Not to speak for him, but what he is saying, and as I said above: This has been fixed in a 'stable beta' release, build 728 and higher I think. It's up to you, if you want to use it. You can get it at

    You can install it like any other release (though I don't think 'beta' releases will install via the auto-update, if you are using that). Or, if you are comfortable swapping files around, you can just download the moneydance.jar file from that same page and replace that one file to get theupdated build. Your other option is to wait for an official MD2010 update release. Hope this helps.
