Income/expense chart issue.

Wouter van Marle-2
Hi all,

I've an issue with the income/expense chart: I do not seem to be allowed
to choose the Income accounts, only the Expense accounts. And I do want
to deselect some of the Income accounts as well.

The issue at hand: my administration is somewhat mixed; I'm running my
own one-man company, and I'm taking care of various expenses on behalf
of a second company, which now and then reimburses me those cost. So
I've set up a special expenses account for this second company, and also
a special income account.

I can not separate these two accounts in separate files, as many
expenses are shared between the two companies, and they use the same
actual bank account of which I also want to keep track accurately.

To check my own profits/expenses, I can now easily make a "profit&loss"
report, taking out the turnover generated on behalf of my partner's
business by simply deselecting those income and expense accounts. Works
like a charm.

However this is not so for the income/expense bar chart: here I can only
deselect the expense account of the second business, but not the income,
resulting in seemingly sky high profits! I can't find a way to also
deselect some of the Income accounts, to filter out the complete
turnover of that second company.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks.

Regards,
Wouter van Marle

yes. I'm using 1.8.11 and it works just fine. Select Reports -> Income & Expense -> Income & Expense Chart. After the chart builds, click Options button on toolbar, select the Accounts tab, and choose the income and expense accounts to include. very straightforward.

There must be something we're missing in your description here?

Hmmm... Grmbl... just looked again at it and you're completely correct
and I'm feeling like a fantastic luser now :) I was simply looking at
the wrong accounts to deselect. Thanks for bothering to answer!
