I'm using MS Money 2004 Small Business. In the account list, my accounts
are catagorized by and in this order:
- bank accounts
- credit accounts
- investment accounts
- loans and liabilities
- asset accounts
In the above view, I cannot easily determine totals for assets and
liabilities. The following view does this.
- bank accounts
- investment accounts
- asset accounts
-loans and liabilities
How do I get the above view?

Not sure when the layout of the newsgroups changed but I can't seem to find the ability to sort by new message in a thread instead of sorting by just the original thread date.
That was hugely helpful as I could follow along and see what threads were still active.

Our company uses a report writer/formatter that creates Excel

I assume you mean "Is it".
The form sort order has nothing to do with editing or adding new
records, so the answer is yes.
If you cannot edit or add new records, make sure the form's record
source, if it is a query, is updateable. Some queries are not.
