On the fly reports from lists

Memorized transactions has it. Right-click on a transactions and select "Report".
Why not have the same option in the "Category" and "Tags" list? Others?
Sure would save some time trying to customize a report to get the same results.

    The Category List  already has the same option.

    Sorry, can't find the "Report" option (right-click menu). Is it elsewhere?

    There is a little printer icon at the bottom left of the Category List and Tags list pages. Click on that to print the list. But it looks like you want the ability to print a quick report of all the transactions that use the selected Category or Tag.

    For Categories, you might try the EasyAnswer How much did I spend on... report.

    The tag list has this too.  Note that Ctrl+P does the same thing.

    Misunderstanding. I'm suggesting a sub-menu option to select a report for a given category or tag.
    The printer icon simply lists the entire category list.
    See attached, gotten from the memorized transactions.

    Right-click on a category in the Category List that has been used and you should have the option:



    Note:  If the category has not been used, the option to view the report is appropriately not provided.

    I see that if one hasn't selected to show the Usage column, this option doesn't exist.

    Also note that once you have the Usage column displayed a quicker way to bring up the report is by clicking on the usage number.

    The Tag list is missing this option.

    Confirmed.  I suppose Quicken is setting a flag when it loads the Usage column.  If you remove the Usage column, the menu option persists until close the Category List window.

    And there it is !!! But I must say...nicely hidden.
    Now, onto tags.

    BTW having the Usage column selected in the Category list slows it down when bring up the list.  It isn't much in my list of 379 categories, but it is there (a few seconds).  People with much larger category lists might notice it more.
