Finally getting a chance to respond to @Quicken Alyssa. I went in to recreate the category hierarchy. I can see the new categories/subcategories in the Category window as long as they are unused. Once I assign a transaction, that subcategory disappears. If I assign a transaction to a category that has no unused subcategories below it, the category will grey out. I also tried exporting my data to a QXF and importing it into a new file. The same thing happens, existing (sub)categories with transactions assigned are not visible/greyed out. Once I assign a transaction to an unused (sub)category, that (sub)category disappears/goes grey. So essentially, in the Category Window I can see and manipulate unused (sub)categories while in a category Report I can see the used (sub)categories.
