--- Comment #16 from Daryl Lautenschlager <dardo13 at charter.net> ---

I found the transaction from 2006-08-13.  It appears to be transferring 
money from one expense category to another which evidently is not 
allowed in KMyMoney.  I don't see any other problems with the 
transaction.  One of the categories involved is called Cash Account 
which I am guessing I set up to track cash expenditures.  Why that is a 
category and not an Account, I can't explain.

A little history that may be helpful.

Years and years ago I did my accounting by hand with a ledger. At one 
point I transferred everything to a book keeping program (I don't 
remember what it was).  From there I transferred it to Quicken.  
Eventually I transferred it to GNUCash and then earlier this year to 
KMyMoney.  Whenever I did the transfer I used the tools provided by the 
new program.

One of these programs must have allowed a transfer between expense 
categories, or something happened in one of the moves to a new program.

As I look at through the Cash Account category, there appear to be a lot 
more of the same type of entry which I suppose has the potential to 
cause the same problem if I try merging payees.

Is it possible to convert a category to an account?  Would that resolve 
this problem?
