I have a "test" laptop with GC 2.6.17 running the latest Linux Mint.  I opened GC and tried using Trading Accounts, did check and repair, noted the totals of assets, liabilities, income and expense before and after.  There was no difference.  I then ran a Income and Expense report for year 2016 (which is the same as my production GC and compared the two.  Again there was no difference in totals between the two GC files.

So, exactly what does Trading Accounts actually do? I noticed that when viewing a stock transaction using auto-split view, there are added lines showing trading: currencies and trading: exchange and stock symbol, that does not appear without trading accounts.


Thanks,

Les

It would be more fun to make a test copy of an existing file! 😁

    Thanks, Adrien, David & Christoph for your replies.  I think
    opening a new GC file and testing Trading Accounts is a good idea.

            I think that if you want to stop using trading account s
            it is difficult to
            turn them off.

            I would set up a test file to try them on until you decide
            whether you like
            them.

                    Can I just start using

                    or would I need to start a new GC file?
