Sorry to not answer this question.. I don't know. But on the subject of
complaining about gnucash, I still use quicken because it automatically
connects to my bank. It's too much work to download files automatically
even though I know gnucash can import them. I click one button and
wammo, all my accounts are automatically updated. Not worth the time
for me to enter all the transactions in manually. All I have to do with
quick is assign which budget each transaction goes to.
