    You can't select individual accounts. Transactions will be pulled into the budget from all cash & credit accounts within that data file.

    @philmatthews So this is a bad news/good news situation. As John says, you can't currently select accounts for budgets. But this has been a request of many Quicken users, as documented in this Idea thread -- and the idea has been marked with a status of "planned" by the developers. That means they get it, they agree, and they've committed to adding this functionality. Unfortunately, we have no idea how soon such a feature will be released, we just know it's coming.
