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?

I have two columns of data. Column A is a list of approx. 20,000 ZIP codes, column B is a selected list of approx. 1600 ZIP codes. How can I compare the two and remove all of the entries in A except those that match B. I would also like to have A sorted so that the identical entries line up with B. There may be entries in B that are not in A, so I would like A to contain a blank cell where the match would be.
I used =IF(VLOOKUP(B1,A:A,1,FALSE),"MATCH","") to highlight the matching ZIP codes in A, but that does not remove the unwanted ZIP codes or sort them...Unhiding Column A

Each row in my summary table in Sheet1 is hyperlinked to a corresponding table in Sheet2 with additional details.
I need to move the rows in my summary table (Sheet1) and preserve the links to and from the details tables (Sheet2).
I found that I can move rows in Sheet1 with cut & insert and the hyperlinks are maintained. I can travel from a row in summary table (Sheet1) to details table (Sheet2) and back, even after the corresponding row (Sheet1) was moved.
But if I sort the rows in Sheet1 the links from Sheet2 back to corresponding rows in Sheet1 lead to presorted locations. Apparen...COUNT function 2 Columns

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.

They don't contain spaces or even formulas that evaluate to "". (Even formulas
converted to values that returned "")?
