@heather Any chance that a date column could be added to to this between columns C & D? When I run the report, it would be more helpful for it to also pull in the date of the transaction rather than just the transaction name and the amount.

I found a problem with the formula in the Category Tracker sheet.

The category summary for the period has in incorrect formula. Cell A7 should be =iferror(QUERY(\$G\$7:\$I\$200,“SELECT G, H WHERE I<>‘Hide’ AND G<>’’ ORDER BY G ASC LABEL G ‘’, H ‘’”, -1),"") It is currently starting on \$G\$8, so the first category is skipped from the period summary.

Thanks

Hi @brenttempleton,
Thanks for catching this error. You are correct that the formula had the wrong cell reference.

I have fixed the sheet to Version 2.02, which will correct this error. It is available now.
