    The plain table?  What is that?  Do you mean an Account Register?  You directly enter each transaction directly into the register.  It should be be pretty easy.  Where are you stuck?

    You set up an account like your Checking Account. Then open the register and start typing on the blank line at the bottom.

    Thank you @volvogirl
    Yes, I mean the account register
    Is there any form for entry similar to the old Quicken program’s form?

    I've been using Q for 30+ years ... and I have no idea what you mean by "the old Quicken program's form" ... unless you're talking about an investment transaction?
    OR, perhaps, are you talking about the split transaction dialog?

    Thank you @NotACPA. The form I am talking about was available in the calendar. You click on the date and a simple form pups up and then you enter the transaction

    Is this what you're talking about?
    I got to this form/dialog by right clicking on a date in the calendar and selecting ADD Income.
    BUT, the function seems to work differently if there's already another transaction on that date. In that case, you need to double-click VERY QUICKLY on the particular date to get to the "Add Income" menu option.  Otherwise, it just brings up info about the already present transactions on that date.

    BUT, all in all, isn't it simpler to just input the transaction(s) directly into the account register???

    Thank you @NotACPA. Yes this the form I am talking about. Where can I find the Calendar?
    It was in the “bills” tab and occupies all the screen
    It is easier for me to enter manual transactions

    @UKR thank you for explanation. I started used to fill in the account register directly. It seems easier. The calendar is good because when you click on the date you don’t have to insert the transaction date, however, you still need to select the transaction account
