How do I include internal transfers to only one designated account in an expense report?
I want to see how much I spent, total, last year. That includes my mortgage principal payments. I record those payments as transfers from my checking account to the liability account associated with our home.
When I run a report for last year showing how much I spent by category, I see that I can include internal transfers. This does bring in the mortgage payments.
The problem is that it also brings in many other internal transfers I make that I do not want to see in my final expense report. For example, i do not want to see the transfers from my checking account to any of our credit card accounts. I cannot exclude those credit card accounts from the report because that is where I record the actual expenses/purchases we make - I just want to exclude transfers to and from those accounts. I also do not want to see transfers from my checking account to our short-term bond account, which is in part where we keep out emergency savings. And so on.
What's the best way to make the report show only the transfer to the liability account for the house (in addition to keeping all the other regular, non-transfer expenses)?
