Transactions By Category Report Bug (Money 2005)

All,

I'm experiencing a problem that I can't seem to work around and I hope
somebody can help me out.  I ran the transaction by category report and
selected category A.  I then went to the category setup screen and
moved category A into B.  I then went back to the transactions by
category report and this time it won't open.  Instead, it acts like
it's going to open, but then immediately reverts back to the report
menu screen.  I'm pretty sure it's doing that because the last selected
category the report ran was for category A and that category doesn't
exist anymore so maybe it's getting confused.  Anyone know how to work
around that?

Brian

I haven't seen discussions of that symptom. I would do
File->RepairMoneyFile->QuickFileRepair.

If that did not do it, and if you are willing to lose custom and
favorite reports, I would consider
Reports->ChangeReportSettings->ResetReports.

If that did not do it, I would consider
File->RepairMoneyFile->StandardFileRepair level 2.

Cal,

Thanks for the quick response.  I fixed it based on your hints.  Here's
what I discovered.

File -> Repair Money File -> Quick File Repair won't fix the problem.

Reports -> Change Report Settings -> Reset Reports doesn't exist in
2005.  You have to go into the report and click customize to see the
button...catch-22.

File -> Repair Money File -> Standard File Repair -> Level 2 won't fix
the problem.

File -> Repair Money File -> Standard File Repair -> Level 1 works!
It's weird that level 2 doesn't, but whatever.  My favorite reports
were wiped out, but that's a small price to pay.

I googled this group and found at least 2 threads reporting the same
bug.  But, neither thread contained a fix.

I need to rethink my backup strategy.  In an attempt to fix the problem
I closed the application and overwrote the last backup file.  The
backup file was now "broke".

Thanks,
Brian

Good. That is an effect of level 1.

In M05 Tools->Settings->BackupOptions
I suggest checking
 x Automatically backup to hard disk on exit
  x Prompt me before backing up each time*
  x Make my file small ...

Then periodically, perhaps once per month or more, copy your
latest backup (named differently from your earlier backups) to a
CDR. With XP, this can be a copy and paste operation. Otherwise
use the burning software that came with your CDR drive.

I strongly suggest use of a USB Flash drive also, in addition to
backing up to your hard drive.  They typically act like a big
floppy.  For a more automated way to make multiple backups, see
Glyn Simpson's method at http://money.mvps.org/backup.aspx


*  This has two advantages in M05.  You can change the file name
occasionally.  I like to pick a name something like money060912.
Then it is easy to change the name to have multiple backups.  The
..mbf extension is automatic.  The other advantage is that you can
choose "Don't Back Up, or you change your mind about exiting by
simply clicking the X in the upper right of the pop-up box.

Money 2007 makes multiple backups that incorporate the date into the
filename.

Form vs. Report

Paid Transaction Removal not removing some transactions
When running Paid Transaction Removal two transactions for an account were not removed to history while seemingly identical transactions in another account were. As I understand the rules of paid transaction removal, a transaction will be removed if it meets the following criteria. 1. If it's an invoice it must be fully paid. 2. If it's a payment, the document amount must be fully applied to one or more invoices. 3. The removal date must be after the document date. The documents are debit notes, are fully paid off (CURTRXAM = .00000) and the document dates precede the cut-off d...

Receivables transactions not aging individual transactions
Looking at smartlist, the Receivables transactions have a search/favourite added, including the aging periods. When you look at the search, it doesn't age the individual transactions, but instead ages the entire customers balance. I would expect it to show the aged balance per transation. Assessment: With how Smartlist is currently designed, the default smartlist object pulls from the Summary table for those aging period amounts. This is the reason why it does not show the aging for individual transactions. I know that the ability to see the aging of the individual accounts would b...

TRANSACTION and SELECT *
Hi all I have a question about SQL Transactions: For example, I have a table with 3 rows (ID 1, 2 and 3). Now I insert a new row within BEGIN TRANSACTION, and I do not commit yet.

Rounding on Investment transactions
I've seen this problem for quite a while in Monday (at least 01, 02, 03, and 04). But when I'm entering my transactions, often times the final amount (shares*cost+comm) don't equal out, it's always the matter of 1 penny, but I'm a bit anal that way. For instance. 0.78800 shares at 27.8900 per share. Fully worked out it comes to 21.97732. So when Money does the transaction it rounds it to 21.98 (makes perfect sense). My brokerage relays the cost as 21.97. What options do I have to make these transactions actually work out? Since I can't do a negative commis...
