Ok, thanks.

Yeah, that's what I meant.  I was assuming that I wouldn't be able to
generate reports from within GnuCash, but some plain-old-text reporting
would be nice on occasion too.

Or I could just learn how to use scheme, but my mind has been polluted
with procedural programming languages, so that may not happen :)

Thanks again!
