Subject: Suggestion for User Manual

Folk
I am not registered with Gnucash, and I couldn't see how to get registered from your web page; and I could see
little need to register.

Here is my iSuggestion.

i am a remedial beginner user of Gnucash.

The user manual is fantastic for setting up the account system for the first time.

Here in Australia, for a small enterprise which owns a few rental houses and a farm which is big enough to
warrant being registered to pay and receive refunds for Goods and Services Tax (GST) and so needs GST

Could not determine account currency

Ok, so with all the playing around with my mutual fund accounts I've
messed something else up.  If I enter a transaction into a mutual fund,
it pops up the dialog box that basically says "Could not determine
account currency, using system default."

I have the accounts set up with their securities (ticker symbol) and the
buys/sells go into the equity account (default currency of USD).  What's
the missing bit?

Mutual fund prices precision

I'm manually entering some mutual fund transactions but it seems that
the price is rewriting itself to a number slightly different from the
price on the statement and I can't get it to stop.

For example, if price per share is 4.76 and the fund bought 47.889
shares, I type those two in and leave the sell column blank.  When the
entry is complete, the price is being rewritten to 4.75999 no matter
what I do.  It throws off the final share count.

What am I missing?

Q: how to debug reports.

I am trying to learn Gnucash and entering sample transactions.

When I try to use some of the reporting features, all I get is a generic
error message.

How can I find out what the real problem is.

The message only gives me :

"Report error

An error occurred while running the report."

Can any one give me a hint on what to do?

Gnucash to and from spreadsheets

I have now spent several years playing with Gnucash and even took and passed
a bookkeeping exam using it which was tricky as the exam was clearly
designed to be taken using Sage.

What I always get stuck on is entering a pre existing set of double entry
accounting data from a spreadsheet into Gnucash and also exporting such data
from Gnucash to a spreadsheet.

I expect I am just missing something really obvious but it seems such an
important and basic thing that I would ask someone to spell it out to me
because I feel I cant make headway with out being able to achieve this.

Steve

Example Data Billing Terms + Tax Tables

Hi,

I'm doing some documentation for the Billing Terms Editor and the Tax Tables
Editor.

I don't use the GnuCash Business features myself, so I'd like some real
examples of the data that is actually used, so I can enter that myself and
get some screen dumps in the special formats needed by GnuCash Help or Guide
documentation.

Could some people who have typical data please provide me with either words
describing their data for these 2 screens, or send me example screen dumps?

If anyone wants to describe the fields used also, that will no doubt help
the quality of the documentation.

Regards,

Chris Good

Location of new GnuCash style sheets

Hi,

I work for a small organisation running Gnucash for our financial records. I run Gnucash 2.6.6 from my
Windows PC but I  store the accounts data on our network for back-ups. I've been running Windows 8.1 but
recently upgraded to Windows 10.

I created a new style sheet to control the appearance of invoices. It would be extremely useful if others in
our organisation could  create invoices for customers.  Where could they find the style sheet that I
created? Is it stored locally on my PC or centrally with the accounts data? I've found the standard style
sheets (.scm files), which are located on my PC at Program Files (x86)/
gnucash/share/gnucash/scm/gnucash/report but there's no sign of the one I created.

It would, of course, be possible to create new style sheets on the PCs of all other staff  members, but then I
would have to edit every copy whenever we change the standard information included on our invoices e.g.
opening hours or tweak our logo. 

I tried writing this to the FAQ page but received an e-mail telling me this isn't a FAQ.

Thanks,
Alec Morrison

How to find/delete/convert all split transactions?

Hi all,

I've been using gnucash for a long while now (oldest imported
transactions are from 2008, original import was done somewhere in 2010
or so), so I've built up quite a bit of financial data (personal for
my family, not business data) through manual entry.

In recent months I've gotten quite frustrated with the manual entry
process, in particular because I do it twice (initial entry on mine
and/or wife's phones followed by copying that data manually to
gnucash). I tried the GnuCash android app, but that was a real
headache because I still had to manually export files and import them
to gnucash.

Anyway, because of that I want to try out an alternative (MMEX, at
this point), but to do that I've got to export my transactions
properly.

The qif convertor (3rd party) seems to work pretty well, as far as I
can tell, but MMEX can't handle split transactions at all (it really
chokes on them). CSV export, again MMEX doesn't handle the imports for
this well as transfers between accounts are lost.

I think I can hack something together with QIF export if I could just
remove/replace all split transactions I've ever entered over the
years. Is there a way to search only for split transactions or in some
way isolate them? Doesn't look like the main UI can do it, so perhaps
another app which accesses the same data?

So to summarize, my question is about replacing splits, and the reason
