Hi

A newbie still struggling.....  I have attached a screenshot to better explain.

The beginning of a new month and I am stuck already !!!!  I want to add a new category  "Bank Fees" and put $10.00 in it.  Just what are the steps to do this ?

Thanks
Ron

If I understand properly: Subtract $10 from a different category and then budget $10 for that category. :)

If you're referring to wanting to make $10 available _now_ in March, budget negative $10 to money reserves.

There are two ways to reduce a category value: By typing the exact number "917.52", or by letting the inline calculator do the work for you by entering "927.51-10", basically appending "-10" to the current value in the cell. The calculator is really useful for adding or subtracting odd amounts, and for performing specific math on category values that comprised of money carried over from previous months plus money that has budgeted in the current month.

Reducing the category value should toss the money back up to ATB.

Edit: I see that you already figured it out. :parrot:
