Reports - Would like a monthly subtotal in categories

FinthFinth Member ✭✭
Quicken for Windows offered a monthly subtotal in reports. I would really like to see this in Quicken for MAC. It takes a long time to do a separate report by month in a category, e.g. groceries to compare monthly spending

Continue to Customize 6. Set your data parameters, such as Last 12 Months or This Year 7. If you wish to limit the report to certain categories or certain accounts, set those filters 8. Generate the report

    @Finth There is a way to do this currently, although perhaps not in the format you were expecting.
    • On the reports menu, select Create summary Report
    • Select Rows=Category
    • Select Columns=Time
    • Select Interval=Month
    • Continue to Customize
    • Set your data parameters, such as Last 12 Months or This Year
    • If you wish to limit the report to certain categories or certain accounts, set those filters
    • Generate the report
    The resulting report lists all your categories down the page, and all the months going across, with a total for each category at the far right. (Doing every category for a period of 12 months can make for an unwieldy-looking report; it's probably more easier to use if you limit the number of categories or have fewer months, such as Last Quarter.)

    Does this type of report meet your needs?

    Thank you. I will check this out.

    That works nicely -- as long as I don't want to print it. Thank you agin. Still hope for an eventual addition of the original format.
