That is certainly one way to implement it. All I was attempting to point out
was that for multiple user databases, some properties (for example,
Sales:Gross:Taxable is an INCOME account, or the data itself) is a shared
property - we both see the same thing. Other data (like multi-line preference
on the "Wachovia" account) is an individual preference. What I see may be
different that what you chose to see for the same account.
