Upgraded to Money Plus Deluxe couple months back. The Spending Tracker is
not registering certain categories so it doesn't keep up to date with my

i have a sub category that always displays in the spending tracker. even if
i remove all categories from the list, this one category still shows up.
it's not even on the list which is another question - what makes a category
show up on the list ? they are not all there.
Help! For some reason or another I can't figure it out, I
lost my spending thermometer on a budget item. It shows up
in the budget as having a budget amount but when I enter
in a transaction it says I have a budget amount of zero
and to enter a spending limit. When I go into
thermometers its says budget amount is zero and I can't
change it. Any ideas?
...How to categorize non essential spending?
I'd like to set a budget on what I can spend for "want" vs. "need"
items. For example, utilities, gasoline, phone are "need". A new
camera, book, chair are "want". I currently categorize all of these
but I cannot run a report such as "Wants" and see all non essential
spending for that month and know where I stand against a budget.
Should I just create two large categories called Needs and Wants then
start adding existing categories to them? Both will be expenses.
To take it a little further, I'd like to setup some type of bank

account, and put it in my checking. The following month,
I repay the money back into my savings account.
This will make it look like I'm contributing more money

that I contributed an extra 100 dollars to savings that
month, when in fact, I borrowed the money from savings
and am mearly paying the money back. An...Budget and Income/Spending

What I need the file to do is to take the team name and copy it into

It appears that no matter what options I check off or on,

How do I budget my lottery spending?
Create a category for it. Assign an amount to this category in BP. Or,
schedule a recurring transaction for this category.

I have a checking account with multiple savings accounts. One of my savings
accounts is for putting away for those yearly bills or once a year expenses.
I add up the yearly amounts for each of them and divide by the number of
paychecks I get each year. That amount is automatically deposited in that
savings account each pay. How can I track in that one savings account how
much I have accumulated for each bill/expense? I have tried to set up a
budget adding each as a savings goal, but that doesn't seem to work. I want
to create a report that shows each one and how much is saved at tha...Closed Account and Savings and spending budget
I have recently closed a couple of bank accounts that I no longer use. In
Money 2007 I set both the accounts to closed. When I went to my budget the
accounts no longer show up and none of the transactions show up. This screws
up my monthly budgets prior to when I closed the accounts and it screws up
the annual budget as well. How can I mark the accounts closed but still have
them show up in budget.
Also I would like to stop the online updates for these accounts. I read an
earlier post that says to stop online updates for the bank in question and
then set up online updates again and onl...Spending limit

...Spending Tracker Problem with converted file in 2007
I've converted my 2006 file to 2007 and now the Spending Tracker only tracks
category spending from one account. More specifically my checking account
adds to the category spending but none of my credit card spending is included
in the Spending Tracker totals. I searched through the settings, tried new
transactions in the existing accounts - no luck.
What does work:
- I created a new file, added two accounts, checking and credit card, added
dummy transactions to both accounts and the Spending Tracker reflects
transactions from both accounts.
- I created a new account ...Average income and spending
Is there a way to get a nice overlook on what the average
expense and income is over a period of time?
Short of using an Income and Expense report for some long period of time (a
year?) and doing the math (/12 for monthly average), no.
You can export the report to .CSV, read it into Excel, and do the math

OK, hopefully an easy one here!
So I spent 40 quid on shoes, then I took them back and got refunded. So in
my clothing category this month I have a postivie transaction of 40 followed
a few days later by a negative transaction (in the same category).
When however I look at my spending report, it says I have spent 40 on
clothing - when I have in fact spent nothing .
How do I get it to recognise the negative transaction?
This would also apply to my housemate borrowing 20 quid off me, in category
'Tom'. I lent him 20, he paid it back, so I haven't 'spent' 20quid on Tom,

This question is in reference to the Money 2004 Spending Analysis view -
Spending by Category.
I ordered and paid for something for our company bike club. Since I was
going to be repaid by the club, I entered the transaction in my credit card
account and assigned it to the category - Office Expenses; Reimbursed.
The bike club made out a check payable to the credit card bank and I mailed
it in. I entered this transaction as a credit in the credit card account
and assigned it to the same category as the above transaction. Money asked
me to confirm that I wanted to use an expense category fo...Spending Catagory
I have trying to make this featue work for me so I can see where my
money goes. (I previously was convinced that money disappeared over
time in the same way water does)
My situation is that I use my credit card for fuel, groceries,
clothes, company reembursable expenses, some houshold bills; basically
for everything besides rent and a few other bills.
Money uses my checking account to catagorize my spending and lumps the
credit card payment into a single catagory so it does not show how my
credit card speding is catagorized. I have each credit card payment
in its account assigned a catago...Spending Tracker mismatch
I'm gotting a fail in my spending tracker using the advanced budget where
the balance of some categories used in spending tracker differ from real
spending and from "spending by category" report. For example, in "spending by
category" report, I have $500 in grocery and nothing in this category in
spending tracker... Of course, the time interval is the same.

...Spending Tracker (MD07)
I have a checking and a credit card account that I include in my
advanced budget. The credit card is one I pay off each month, so I have
it in my debt reduction planner. It shows up in my bills list and the
payment is updated with each new charge thruout the month (good!)
What is bad though is the Spending Tracker bargraphs. I have one for
groceries and gas, but what I've noticed is that the charges I enter in
the credit card account are not counted when computing the bargraph...
only those debits from my checking account.
If I move the credit card account out of the debt planner, ...Average Customer Spending

Hi I'm a UK user, using Money version 14, but I don't think this
question is particularly country-specific.
In order to help me analyse my *monthly* expenditure I want to see
spending by category averaged out on a monthly basis over the last
twelve months. This is really helpful in smoothing out peaks and
troughs and setting a monthly budget. I've done this so far by
exporting data from an annual-expenditure-by-category report into

30th June. Then I paste these figures into Excel as a column against

that allows me to track "All Expenses" and show the thermometer on the home

budget categories) as a category and show it as a thermometer on the home

In older versions of Money you would see the spending tracker each time you
entered something in an account. I cannot seem to find a way to add this back
in. Is money just limited to having 10 items on the budget/home page? Does
