Show transactions only between accounting periods

Is it possible to display transactions in the main Account tab that
only fall within the accounting period that I specify? Right now the
Account tab is showing all transactions.

Thanks

Antonio

Help: Research group accounting

Hello!

There is a small research group, which runs various experiments on human subjects. The subjects are paid
for the amount of time they spent participating. I wonder if it would be reasonable to use GnuCash to track
what the research group owes/pays/gets from the subjects.

Detailed description of the "business logic" of the research group:

1. There is a pool of registered subjects, each has a unique ID number. (Should they be accounted as
"employees" or rather as "customers"? Or maybe "vendors"?)

2. Each time a subject participates, she/he is credited an amount of minutes. (I know that minutes can be
defined as a custom "fund" in GnuCash.)

3. After a subject has collected a sufficient amount of minutes, they can come and withdraw their balance in
form of cash (at a fixed exchange rate e.g. 0,15 USD for each minute of experiment participation).
The professor pays the subjects from his own pocket, collects signed receipts and gets later reimbursed by
the university.

4. Alternatively, at her/his own wish, the subject may exchange part of their balance for a volunteering
certificate, stating they participated for a given amount of time unpaid.

I'm a beginner and this case of business is rather unusual compared to most GnuCash tutorials. May somebody
suggest a proper scheme for accounting this?

Best regards,
JP

Can't download GnuCash 2.6.7 - Any ideas

I have GnuCash 2.6.6 operating on Windows 8.1 with TrendMicro Maximum 
Security.  Have tried different mirrors, protectiuon against viruses and 
spywear and restarting computer and waiting a long time - no result.  
Browser (Chrome - and yes I have tried Explorer as well) appears to go 
OK but stops at waiting for (whatever is the mirror's URL).

Any ideas?

Cheers

Another grouping of Aging Accounts Receivable report

The default Aging of Accounts Receivable report groups the not paid invoices
in:
Current, 0-30 days, 31 - 60 days, .........  Total

Current, 0-8 days, 9-14 days, ...... Total
or with other limits

???

Changed Entry Dates after updating from 2.6.4-2 to 2.6.6 and/or 2.6.7

I am using Gnucash version 2.6.4-2 on Windows 8.1

Everything works fine and proper here, but then I updated to
2.6.6 and

all of a sudden all the dates of my entries changed with the
most recent

ones set to NOVEMBER 2060, so I reverted back to 2.6.4-2 and
all was back well.

After 2.6.7 came out I updated to it and got exactly the
very same result. All my

entry dates were changed with the most recent set to
NOVEMBER 2060. So I

reverted back to 2.6.4-2

What could be the problem of this?

Thanks for any help in advance

Posting an edited bill & Bill reminders

Hi, wonder if anyone can help me with this issue.

I created a bill, posted it and paid it.

Later on I've had to edit the bill, so I've unposted it and made the changes
and reposted it. 

The transaction that was created when the bill was first paid appears to be
unaffected (which is great), but the bill is now coming up in my Bill
Reminders box. 

How can I remove the bill from the reminders and get GNUCash to acknowledge
that the bill is paid. 

I really don't want to undo the original transaction and repay the bill - I
can see that becoming complicated!!

Thanks.

Cannot export transactions

I want to export a set of transactions. The documentation says I should see
'Export Transactions to CSV' under the 'Export' option in the 'File' menu in
the account window.

But the only thing that shows up in the 'Export' menu is 'Export Accounts'.
'Export Transactions to CSV' is MISSING!

Can anyone help resolve this?

Thanks!

Where does Gnucash save it backup files when using mysql data source

I have found the backups of gnucash to be very invaluable.  In order to 
facilitate a client with their accounting (access from home and work) 
I'm exploring the mysql data feature.

I'm having problems locating where the backups are stored.  Can someone 
help?

Thanks.

Re: Budget reporting for a time interval

Well, we’re talking half the screen width, not just the amount that a tab would change.  And my tabs are at
the top, so changing them to the side would presumably make it worse.
