How do I create a new category for Business Income ?

When I create a new category, I cannot chose if it is business or personal. I tried to create a Business income category, and once entered, I can only find it as a Personal. cannot find a way to get this simple task done. thanks for your help.

    Any category is designated as being BUSINESS by assigning a business tax line to it.  No tax line = personal expense.  Personal tax line = personal expense. ONLY a business tax line (probably Sched C, but there are others) = business expense.

    Are you actually running the HBP version of Quicken ?
    I would guess there are already categories for Biz INCOME that have their appropriate tax line for Biz INCOME.
    Take a look thru... Tools --> Category List
