Hi John,

let me rephrase my last mail; you seem to have missed what I was intending to 

I noticed yesterday that "select children" in the transaction report didn't 
seem to work as i remembered.  maybe it has been broken or changed. I haven't 
had time to investigate the new behaviour yet.

You seem to have an issue with getting the accounts you want to select in the 
same report (but different GC version)

I made sure that the accounts I wanted were selected by manually expanding the 
tree in the accounts selection dialogue, and doing a "select all" to get round 
the child accounts not selecting... maybe that would work for you too, maybe
