Hi Yawar

Thank you for your help.

Regarding the separate note:  I wanted to add a table as noted below but
I have not tried that type of edit yet.  I am not sure where the table
should be located, but I am suggesting a possible location.  I would
appreciate your input in this matter.

Add the following table to the Tutorial and Concepts guide section
Transactions:The Account Register:Features of the Account Register  and
reference it in the list of tables

 <table frame="topbot" id="reconcile status">
          <title>Reconcile Status definitions.</title>
    <tgroup cols="3">






Default status when a transaction is created</para></entry>



                <entry><para>Status may be assigned either manually or
by an import process.</para></entry>



                <entry><para>Status assigned solely by the
reconciliation process.  Places limits requiring confirmation on editing
fields in that line of a transaction.</para></entry>



                <entry><para>Not implemented at this time.</para></entry>



                <entry><para>Status is assigned or released manually
through the transaction menu to a transaction and applies to every line
in the transaction.  It hides most of the transaction details but does
not delete them. When a transaction is voided a reason entry is required
that appears to the right of the description.


Section includes the menu items Void and Unvoid.
