Category question vs. Money categories

Hello, I did a trial conversion under R3 from Money to Quicken.I do like the program and will clean a few things up in Money and convert again when R4
comes out.I've noticed for example,I have a sub category under education called "music lessons".Quicken lumps the total $ amount of all my education under the music lesson sub category.I can seperate this out after going deeper into the reports,but it is misleading at first glance. Does Quicken not like sub categories ? Should I change all my sub categories in Money to inividual categoreis before I convert again ? Thanks again Alan

I assume from your post that refers to R3, that you are referring to Q2010.

I don't see any evidence that *Quicken* (Q2010) has any problem with subcategories. Have you seen any problem behaviour with new subcategories you have created in Quicken?

I don't think so; but it's hard to tell from your post.
There is a known *conversion* problem with subcategories; though I don't recall anyone explaining it as you have. In fact, the explanations I have seen, say essentially the opposite of what you have said.
If you want to see if you are having the problem I know about - and you want to know how to "correct" it in Q2010 (and maybe in Q2009): choose a subcategory that is giving you a problem; open the Category List, select that subcategory, click Edit, click OK. Then try to recreate your problem (from scratch). If the one subcategory you "Edit"ed in the Category List no longer exhibits the problem ... apply the same "fix" to all your subcategories.
I can not tell you whether (or when) the problem will be "fixed" for new conversions.
