    Please confirm:  Are you asking about adding accounts or adding categories?
    Accounts cannot have sub-accounts.  I'm not even sure what is meant by "sub-accounts".   There is a lot of good information here regarding setting up of various types of accounts:
    Categories can have one or more sub-categories.  You might want to read up on it at

    In accounting, there are 4 and only 4 types of Ledgers:  Asset, Liability, Income and Expense. 
    Q calls Asset and Liability types "Accounts" and Income and Expense types "Categories".
    In Q, no Account can have a "sub- ...", but Categories CAN have sub-cats, and even sub-sub cats, etc.
    SO, in addition to @Boatnmaniac's info, please utilize Quicken HELP, Getting Started Guide for more info.
