I tried the removal with having Sort Code visible in accounts and categories view. When I 
remove it on the categories view and answer No, it goes away but is still present on the 
accounts and institution view. If I then remove it on the accounts view and answer Yes, it 
will be removed from both, the accounts and institution view. So far, that looks ok to me.

Adding in conjunction with No does not seem to work as expected.

CC is for Cost Center and will identify if a cost center assignment is necessary for a split 
referencing a category. The view will show a check mark if the requirement is present.

Opening the category editor (select a category, edit it) will show the "Cost center 
assignment required" option towards the bottom of the dialog. This controls the check 
mark in the view.

The cost center stuff is not yet functional in anything other than the account/category 
editor and view. It is used in the new ledger code already, but we don't have that yet. So it's 
something for a future feature.

Not sure, if we can easily remove it, since this will be a string change. Maybe, we can add a 
section about cost centers and that it is work in progress.

Sort Code is showing the content of the IBAN field of an account.
