Many thanks for further response.

I have separate user accounts, etc, but I was running the other accounts from 
my personal login having given myself access to the other "user" files.
I just logged in properly as the other user and magic there are no saved 
reports.

So my question is answered, just need to login with my personal or charity 
account, etc.

Many thanks

Jim

Jim,

Mike was referring to separate Windows logins. I suspect you're talking about 
different Gnucash files. If you use Gnucash for different Gnucash files, but 
from the same Windows login, you will have the same stored reports for all of 
them. If you have a different Windows login for each, they will have separate 
folders for everything.

I do actually have two user accounts at the moment but the reports are common.
Perhaps my configuration needs changing?

I am using Windows10

Regards

Questions like this are awkward to answer yes-no.

One OBVIOUS way is to put each under a different USER (I am assuming that your 
OS supports this, as all modern ones do). In other words, you personal books 
would be under your "own" log in, your charity1 books would be under a 
different user  log in (say org1) and this new organization under another user 
(say org2). Then you use "change user" 
and enter that user's password to go to one of these.

Just because you are a single human being doesn't mean that your
computer(s) have to see you as a single person/user. But this answer is 
probably not the sort of one you are looking for.
