When Closing Accts., Do You Select 'Keep This Acct. Separate'?

Just wondering when people close an acct. (such as a credit card), do you check the box 'Keep this acct. separate - acct. will be excluded from Quicken reports & features?

I always check this box but I realized if I ever want to look at previous spending, these accts. won't be included (so my spending looks lower).

    Why close?  Just zero it out and hide it.  Making it separate causes it to not be included in the Networth report if you run it against a range of dates.

    No. I never check that box. When I am ‘finished’ with an account, like an old credit card or bank, I hide the account. When necessary, I will choose to show hidden accounts and include the ‘I’m finished with’ account.
