According to the help screen, there is a drop down menu, however I cannot find one. Also going through the setup account process there is no selection for asset class. I am on Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2013 Release R 1.

Sy, do you mean assign an asset class to an Account or to an individual stock?  Assuming it's individual stocks, go to Edit Security, and allocate a type.  The various types are listed under Investing/Security Type List - it can be edited to suit your requirements.

Hello Dave: I have Reckon Personal Plus 2018: my problem is:
Under Investing tab/ Analysis/ Asset Allocation where one can set up and compare Actual with Target Allocations:
 I cannot get it to list my actual cash accounts (bank accounts) as an asset class. It only shows the Actual equity investments such as Australian & International shares. 
How do I get this section to show my cash accounts that are there? It does not work when I choose the Option Show accounts All, or the option Multiple accounts (where I can see and select my various cash bank accounts and share accounts)??
Please advise, what I need to do to get this going.

I don't use that functionality, David.  I use the Portfolio View to look at the various Asset Classes including Cash, but don't compare to Target.  You could transfer the Report to Excel, and manually add the Target figures and calculate the difference.
