Right, at http://www.gnucash.org/docs.phtml you can view the
documentation in html or pdf form,
while the  epub mobi format are usually offered for download.

So the Section headers on the page are indeed misleading.

It depends on the configuration of your browser, how to handle which
MIME type. If your browser knows the format - like html - or has an plug
in like adobe reader for pdf, it will try to open it. Else it will ask
you - with the default "downlad"/save - how to handle it.

Installing Kubuntu 15.04

When the  final version comes out on the 23rd can I install it over the 
version 15.04 or has that bug that kept me from installing it earlier. 
Can I remove the partial installation that will not open as 15.04. I 
want to try to get back to Kubuntu. n the log in page there is a drop 
down menu that contains Plasma, Failsafe, and Xfce. the Xfce is the only 
one that will open.

Problem with creating a scheduled transaction with a formula

Hi,

I'm trying to enter a scheduled transaction for the monthly interest on 
an IRA account. I've right clicked on a previous interest entry and 
clicked on Schedule. Whenever I try to enter what the documentation says 
is the correct formula, I receive an error.

The formula comes from the gnucash documentation (which isn't terribly 
clear but I figured this out):

http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Scheduled_Transactions#Bank_Account_Interest

The formula I'm using is this, the error is triggered with the exact 
same text as in the example in the wiki

computeInterestIncrement( 5000.00 : 0.03125 : 12 : i )

"computeInterestIncrement" is the correct formula name, which I 
confirmed in the fin.scm file. (The documentation really could stand to 
point out *where* this file is).

When I click OK on the editor this is the error I receive (where 
Interest account is the text I added in the split):

Couldn't parse credit formula for split "Interest account"

After doing some searching through the web & mailing list archives, I 
didn't find anything useful. There don't appear to be any bugs related 
to this error in bugzilla. Am I doing this right or do I need to do 
something different? Is this a bug? Any help is appreciated.

Link account balance to an entry in another account?

Is it possible to have a link between the balance of an account and an
entry or starting balance of another one such that the entry is always
up to date?

For example, suppose I have a checking account with balance X.  I create
a new account Foo whose very first transaction is the checking account
balance (so X).  If I add a new record to the checking account that
changes the balance to Y, the entry in Foo should change to Y.

The idea here is a scratchpad for testing out transaction scheduling
(meaning schedule in real life not the schedule in Gnucash) and the
ultimate balance.

Can't fix last transaction or add new in certain accts ...

Likewise when I double-click on the account  in the 'Account Name' list it doesn’t bring up the  account
details, but rather only the next sub-account without details.  I have to use  the Open button.

The big problem is not being able to fix the last transaction – – even changing the date. I’ve tried
everything including  changing the ‘parent account’,  deleting the transaction, duplicating it,
etc. nothing works.

.LNK and .log files

Thank you all for the help on my other problem which is solved. In 
searching for the correct file to open in 2015 I found many files going 
back to 2010. Most are .log files. Can I delete them without causing 
myself a problem? Move them to trash?

Which report to use for HST return

I am using GnuCash and need to do my quarterly HST report.
I wonder how it can be accomplished with GnuCash.
Is there any report I can print to show the totals needed?

"The selected accounts contain no data/transactions" but they do...

Hi,

I am trying to get the "Expense Piechart" report for all expenses in the 
following account structure (in parenthesis is the type of account) for 
fundraising events for a non-profit:

Events (income)
       Event1  (income)
             Income  (income)
             Expenses  (expense)
       Event2 (income)
             Income (income)
             Expenses (expense)

When I try to run the report it says:

"No data
The selected accounts contain no data/transactions (or only zeroes) for
the selected time period "

According to the documentation this should work. Doesn't it? I'm missing 
something?

If I change "Events" to be of type "Expense" (instead of "Income"), it 
does generate the report correctly.

I still need to keep Events, Event1, and Event2 as income accounts (for 
other reports, and the "signs" of numbers in different contexts).

I'm running Gnucash 2.6.6.
