GnuCash is a powerful double entry accounting software package that allows
users to enter and track their money in a reliable manner. However, putting
this information into
GnuCash is only a part of the process. To be truly
helpful, you need to be able to extract this information in meaningful ways.
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).
