I backed up my file and proceeded with editing the duplicate bill series,
selecting the bill series will end after 1 transaction. After selecting ok,
and returning to the bill summary, the duplicate entry went away, so I
couldn't even enter it into the register and later delete it. I then
returned to edit the bill series and deselected the bill series will end at
some point, selected ok, returned to the bill summary and the duplicate
stayed gone. I did this with the three duplicate entries and now my bills
properly group the account when sorted on the account column. Bizarre!
Thanks for your help. Not sure how it fixed itself, but things seem to be
okay, for now, even after closing and re-opening the file.
