Errors Generating Reports in the Latest Moneydance Version 2024.1 (build 5118)

When creating a report using the Transaction Filter, both the Description and Memo categories no longer work to filter the transactions. Instead, the result is "Nothing to Report". Memorized reports that were previously saved in Version 2023 now show "Nothing to Report". I checked on another computer that I hadn't yet upgraded to the latest version of Moneydance, and I was still able to generate a report using Moneydance 2023. Both computers are synced to the same data using DropBox Connection.

How do I fix this?

    Hmm.. I am surprised that you get nothing... I just tested and do get results.. Can you edit the report and send a Screenshot of the settings..? Also:

    • can you try the Home/Summary screen and type your search text.. Anything appear there?

    I'm working on some improvements related to the transaction filter report now. As Stuart mentioned, seeing a screenshot of the settings screens might reveal the cause, and I can fix any confusion there.

    For instructions on how to take a screenshot, try this link: https://www.take-a-screenshot.org/

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your help.

    Here are the screenshots:

    1. Initial Report Generated

    2. The above report was generated using these criteria:


     

    3. When I click on Memos, then add the search term “Icicles” (See screenshot below), I get “Nothing to Report”

    To make sure that it wasn't a typo issue, I changed the search criteria to “Icicle” (not plural) (see screenshot below), but I still get “Nothing to Report”.

    Other than the Memo criteria, nothing else was changed.

    Thanks again.

    So I see one report setup for "this year", on category "For Dad" and with the memo "Icicles".
    The second report setup is the same but without the restriction on the memo field and should be all "this year" "for Dad"

    Sorry -

    I am sending the screenshots again - each in a separate email. Since I am not sure which one was received, I am sending all three again.

    1. This is the report that I created:

    2. The report created (previously sent) used these criteria:

    3. I changed the criteria by checking the Memo box with the criteria “Icicles” - result: “Nothing to Report”

    4. To make sure that the problem wasn’t due to a typo, I changed the Memo criteria to “Icicle” (not plural) - result still says “Nothing to Report”

    @Sean, MD2024 is not doing partial word matches in Memo field? I can verify that it works in MD2023 as the OP said. There is also a note that the "Description" field is not matching as well.

    Previously working reports on the "Memo" field are also not working for me now on the latest version (which I just paid for, so that kinda bugs).

    It *DOES* work if you use a single character. For example, if I include a single "W" in the criteria for Memo, I will get a report of all transactions that have a "W" anywhere in the memo column. It fails to return any values if you add a second character. So it looks like they initialized a search, but just didn't loop through for more than one character.

    Unfortunately, searching for a "W" in the memo field is hardly useful.

    "Unfortunately, searching for a "W" in the memo field is hardly useful." :-) That is true. Seems like a serious bug in 2024. I hope Sean has time to look at it more closely.

    In the Alpha stream we are currently at build 5120, so not far past the latest stable build, we have not seen any changes as yet to the Transaction Filter report.

    Can you create a test dataset with some data in it and share that. Then we can run the same reports as you to understand why they are not working for you?

    Here is a dummy account that I created:

    When I use Transaction Filter, check “Memo", then add “ABC” (without quotation marks), I get “There’s Nothing to Report!”
