One thing that I would like to use this program for is to help me keep track of my balance. I know that it will give you the Closing balance for any accounts you have set up. I would like to be able to enter some possible transactions to see where my money stands if different amounts are paid to different people (separate of main information). All of this may be changeable to see how much money is in balance depending on how much is paid to different people. Ex. Balance is $100.00 and if I pay person A for 26.58 and person B for 34.56 then my balance will be? If I choose to pay person C for 24.99 and person D for 10.34 then balance will leave me with? This would give me possibilities before actual payments are made. I know this sounds simple but it would be nice to see it in the program. Another example would be for an upcoming month I make 2 pay checks on a bi-monthly schedule. If I am paid 456.78 on one and 365.89 on another with bills due on the 5th for a total of ? Then I can pay certain bills with money left over. I also have different bills due later in month for another X amount total. Well if I pay certain bills before the 5th then I will be left with X dollars in account. This will allow me to pay other bills using second paycheck and have another balance available. All of this is just a trial balance using the balance in main account but using different scenarios for making payments and still have money left over?
Another question is for the main listing of checks and accounts they go in? I would like to be able to sort the listings by category (you can already do) but after doing this can you get a total for each category? Ex. Sort all Food items but then total up how much was spent in that category separately? Possible even categorize for Yearly and Monthly? Basically a report for each item (Food, Gas, other expenses) showing total spent it that category?
A third question concerns the order in which entries are made? Can they be reversed so that the newest entry is located on top?
