Try doing a custom transactions report. Ask Quicken to tell you all the 
transactions for a certain categoy that you use in your checks. For 
instance, I have a monthly stipend for working on Linux from someone. I 
catagorize that as Computer:Linux Eval. (Linux Eval is a sub-category) I 
deposit money with that category, and when I spend money against it I 
use the same category. The transactions report would tell me money in 
minus money out and let me know if I have money to spend. This report 
will not generate in Q2004PE. It used to work in Q2001, as I remember 
it. It worked in Q2004PE under a previous release of CXO. In my current 
setup it jsut doesn't work. When I try it

1) Quicken and the report window immediately minimize. this happens all 
the time.

2) When I bring Quicken back form the task bar so that I can see it the 
most common occurace is that the report window comes up, but it has a 
black interior. The report window cannot be dismissed. To kill it I have 
to exit Q2004PE.

2a) Sometimes the report window will not come back up. It appear stuck, 
minimized on the taskbar.

If it matters I'm a fluxbox user. My new FC2 environment has Gnome and 
fluxbox so I can try more options there.
