Missing Home & Business caergories. And, are they worth looking for?
Home, Business & Rental 2018 has a bunch of business and
rent property categories that aren't in Quicken Basic. "Parts & Service,"
"Tolls" etc. I thought when my Basic Quicken 2013 files were
converted to Home & Business 2018 the new categories would show up. They
don't. If I create a new, empty data file I can see them. But they do not appear
in my old, actual data files. (This is with both "ALL Categories" and
"Show Hidden Categories" selected.)
Before I grind on this too much, are these new categories even worth having?
When I upgraded I thought Quicken had linked their new categories to the appropriate
IRS line items. But if I reclassify my "Rent House Repairs" category
to Quicken's new "Repairs (Rental)" category, no line item appears
with it in the category list. If I have
to figure out which line item "Tolls" goes with, Home & Business
is no better than Basic. I can do the same line item look up and link it to my
existing with my "Rent House Repairs" category in Basic.
