Home Quicken for Windows Budgeting and Planning Tools (Windows)

Planning categories don't match transaction categories

The categories in my budget planning don't match the categories I have set up in my transactions. Further, it doesn't seem that expenses from these missing categories show up in my budget. How can I make categories from my transactions show up in my planning?

Attached is an example of my fees categories from the 2 places.

    Please select manage budget categories from the budget tab. Then check to see if you are using budget categories and if so have left out some expense categories.

    The "Planning.GIF" shows the fee expense categories I can choose from, even if I select show hidden, so I don't have the option of adding the same categories

    That fixed it, thanks! In my categories Costco fees was somehow under Personal Income, not Personal Expenses, even though the parent Fees category is in Personal Expenses. Changing the category caused the fee category to show up in my budget options. I've got the same question about transfer accounts not showing up, but I'll post that as a separate question.
