I believe that the "Unrealized Losses" entry on the Trial Balance report is calculated. You will need to create an account for it, as well as the transaction to account for the loss.  HTH, David  On Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 11:40, Jayakumar Chakravarthy wrote: Hi, When I make an Invoice

Hi, When I make an Invoice and receive money in a foreign currency and account them in my home currency, where does the unrealized gain/loss go? I observe an entry in Trial Balance having 'Unrealized Losses' with this amount. But where is that account? How can I view it? Thanks. Jayakumar

Dale, There is a wiki page on the migration from Quicken (https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Quicken_Migration) and perhaps this is a more appropriate place to document differences for new users coming from other packages as hopefully this is where they will end up. Perhaps a note referring to the

Frank and Deane, I think that the page that Frank provided a link to [ https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/IRC ] is probably slightly overwhelming to people who are not regular users of IRC, which, these days is most people, since we have mostly migrated to SMS apps on cellphones. First, choosing an

Geert, I was beginning to understand this point as well. Not that it makes sense in any way. Why would a user choose to define an image along with its accompanying text box by pixel? Further: the setting is "Plot width" --and not "Width of pie and accompanying text box" or something equally

This does not really address the issue. Quickbooks, for example, is a double-entry accounting system. What is being provided by the user interface is an alternate method for entering transactions. (A perverse user could enter every transaction from the general journal screen in Quickbooks. ) The

I agree. GnuCash should store the exact state of the windows it manages. If they are in "Maximized" state, that's what should be saved. Please file it as a bug. Thanks! Geert Op maandag 12 augustus 2019 06:11:00 CEST schreef David T. via gnucash-user: > Hello, > > GnuCash 3.5 on Windows 10.

The OP was fairly light on details. (and gave a general “I don’t understand” but never said specifically ‘what’ they didn’t understand) It seems a few people hazarded a guess and might have gotten it right. (we haven’t heard back from the OP yet since) Another approach would be to tell

GnuCash doesn’t require you to close. It is optional. If you need to provide a file for someone else to audit, you could save a copy at year end and give them that one. Of course, this is just personal preference. As for the bug, this was discussed in the last year or so on this list. I
