GnuCash's reporting features allow you to just that.
GnuCash's reporting features allow you to display nearly any group of transactions in a wide variety
of formats. This makes it easy to answer questions about your finances, such as
“How much did I spend on groceries last month?”
or “How much did I earn in the previous six months?”
GnuCash includes a number of common report types, which can be modified to meet your specific needs.
If these common reports are insufficient, it is possible to modify or even write your own custom
reports (although this is not recommended for beginners).
