I have found MYOB reporting to have significant limitations when a business has different cost centres and wishes to report on these seperately
The business uses the 4 codes for sales and the 5 codes for cost of sales whilst the 6 codes are used for the admin expenses of the entire business. We cannot therefore report on profit centre 1, profit centre 2 etc seperately.
I have explored the use of categories and these appear to have potential. The major problem with this is that you need to specify the category at the bottom of each data entry page for every transaction. This is not feasible!!
SO - can the software be upgraded so that categories can be linked to account codes (so that the account code defaults to one of the categories). This would save having to enter the category on every transaction and hence open up huge potential for the use of category reports.
