thanks, obvious. that's what I get for drinking two beers BEFORE sitting
down at the computer. I find though that I use lots of the reports in
lots of different ways. many of them I leave open all the time for my
default uses, but I'm constantly running different little cashflow & P&L
reports for random stuff. The cashflow is a killer as it takes forever
(30+ SSECONDS!!) to run when I first pick it... then I have to go modify
it and run again... annoying.
I am hoping to find out whether people think this is even a good idea or
not? and what the implications are. If its something that only bothers
