  • I'm trying to decide how to categorize costs for my daughter's wedding, in MS Money Sunset. Thanks for any suggestions!

  • Simplest would be to create a category for the purpose.

    Wed_Mary

    Wed_Mary:reception

    Wed_Mary:flowers

    That is the simpler way.

    The more complex way would be to start using Classifications, and have a Wed_Jane classification. Unless you use classifications for other things, I would not get into that. With a classification, you can use other categories, and use the Classification in reports as a further item. The classification becomes an extra tab in customizing reports.

  • I second the use of classifications. I use categories to generically identify a transaction, eg. Transport:Bus, and then classifications to link a transaction to a specific event if desired, eg. Holidays:Paris 2018.
