Hi Derek,

Progress is not all that good. :-( 

I've never encountered anything like scheme or lisp before, and the report 
code doesn't seem like it is trivial....

I can't work out how the script knows if the total balance outstanding is 0, 
and thus to hide the company in the final report.

Am I correct in saying that every relevant transaction over the past year is 
put into a "bucket", and only non-zero totals are shown by the html 
rendering , or are zero-total companies thrown away "on the fly"?

I have managed to add an entry to the options box, but that really was not 
hard... even for me.

Looking for a push in the right direction,

PS  I'm working on the script from the source tree of 1.8.11
