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.

Detailed Sales Report Question
For some reason, on our detailed sales report, the cost and profit are not accurate. I think I've narrowed the problem down to returns because every time we have one, the report shows a negative on Qty sold and total sales, but it still shows the same cost and profit as a sale for that item. As an example, I had a customer buy a charbroiler and return it later that day to buy a bigger one. The Detailed Sales Report shows the first transaction with this information... Qty Sold: 1 Sold Price: 995.00 Total Sales: 995.00 Cost: 694.35 Profit: 300.65 Then, the return shows up with this....

Upgrading reports from CRM 3.0 to 4.0
Having spent around 10 hours trying to upgrade a custom report from CRM 3.0 to CRM 4.0, I thought I’d post a message to share my pain and the solution! It appears that in CRM 4.0 Microsoft have made a change to the way in which the standard reports retrieve the name of the user running the report. I have been unable to find any documentation about this. If you have a custom report that is based on a standard CRM 3.0 report (i.e. it has the CRM_FullName parameter & UserInfo dataset) and upload it into CRM 4.0 then try to run it, you may get either of the following behaviours • Th...

My thoughts on Money
After spending (too much) time researching different accounting packages, I made the decision to purchase MS Money 2006 Small Business edition. I do run a small business, hence the SB edition. I wanted a software package that would manage my business funds. The personal funds management is just a nice plus. I have never before used Money or any other accounting software, so I cannot make any comparisons. I can, however, write about what I think about the software as a new, uncorrupted, and unspoiled user. Let me start by reiterating that I am a new user, so I maybe haven't seen...

a bug in CPreviewDC::TabbedTextOut in VS2005 SP1

BUG with RES/SCRIPT/XP-SP2

Capital gains Report #2
I have used Microsoft Money for years so am not a novice user. Lately I've done some day trading and noticed to my annoyance that when I run the Reports/Taxes/Capital Gains from the Microsoft Money menu, it gives me incorrect values under the 'Purchase Cost' column. Sale Proceeds are correct. Consequently the overall Capital gains is also wrong. Further, I notice that this happens ONLY to stocks for which dividends have been paid to me in one of my 4 or so accounts at ANY time in the past.

Use of Money for audits
Do Money users generally also keep copoies of all their bank statements? It seems redundant. On the web I get conflicting advice, even in the same article.

On the other hand, the advice is to keep electronic copies of all statments. What do real life users do? I keep all the paper copies including tax return stuff and print a Money all transactions all accounts report once a year besides. It fills about one copy paper carton every second or third ...
