I am unable to find expense items in a speedy way because they are not sorted alphabetically when trying to write a cheque in Reckon Accounts Plus 2018

Hi Anton

In your Chart of Accounts screen, click on the Account button at the bottom of the window & select Re-sort List from the pop-up menu, then OK to confirm.

Your list looks very unnecessarily extensive.  Is there a reason why you have separate accounts for each bank's fees & interest????
The separation is in the Supplier & Bank Account itself (eg Your NAB Supplier & bank account will only have its own fees & interest charges) - Remember, accounts are intended to be categories, not individually transaction-specific.

I think you would also benefit from using Header/sub accounts format & deleting/de-activating unused accounts too.

Aside from displaying alphabetically, the above suggestions will make your Account List shorter & simpler for you to work with.

thanks, that did the trick

I only ever had Bank Fees and the accountant requested to create a separate account for each Banks Interest and for each Banks fees, I know it is crazy and drives me nuts each month when I have to enter these fees

I may look for a new accountant
