Adding credit card to budget (Q Mac)

In setting up my budget, there seems to be no provision for multiple accounts, e.g. credit cards. I have any number of expenses recorded in my card acct, but only the main checking account income/expenses show up in the budget. I understand about the transfer/credit card payment thing, but no expenses from my card show up.

    Hello revboss. Appreciate your question.

    According to this article: https://www.quicken.com/support/quicken-mac-12-month-budget-overview-and-getting-started, there are some categories that cannot be added:

    Ignored Categories

    A few “special” categories are always ignored by the budget and are not tracked:

    • Adjustment
    • Transfer
    • Transfer: Credit Card Payment
      • or any other subcategory under the “Transfer” category.
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
