Bug Description

Une fonctionnalité intéressante serait de pouvoir afficher un rapport de tendance dans le temps de toutes les catégories. Actuellement, si l'on veut suivre l'évolution des dépenses dans les catégories "Alimentation", "Logement" et "Automobile", il faut les sélectionner un par un. Ce serait vraiment pratique de les afficher cote à cote, en proposant par exemple un tableau de ce type :

        | Jan 2013 | Fév 2013 | (...) | Moyenne | Total
Catégorie 1 | - 200,45 | -198,00 | (...) | -292,16 | 2000,12
Catégorie 2 | (...)
Catégorie 3 | (...)
Catégorie 4 | (...)
Catégorie 5 | (...)

Qu'en pensez-vous ?

First, I would like to thank you for this great software!

I am also interested in this feature. I think it is also related to following whishes:
 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/homebank/+bug/1583315
 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/homebank/+bug/660275 topic 2

When generating those trends graphics in a line format with categories, I have seen that:
 - for visibility, small categories could be grouped, like it is done in the main window "Where your money goes". Maybe it would be good to select the number of category displayed (5-6-7...)
 - if we could select the order of each category this would help. For example, set at the bottom fixed incomes or expense for a better visualization (see attached picture).

Thank you.

This report is the one I miss the most from my proprietary software days...

The headers along the top read for each month with one additional column for the yearly total.

Each row is a subcategory (indented), with the super-category (not indented) either a leading or trailing total.

One final row at the end shows the cashflow balance for that month (gaining or losing money), which is just the sum of all the above income/expenses.

In Quicken, I'm pretty sure this used to be called "Category Summary", but I was not able to easily find it on the web.

This is the closest I found, which I'll try to attach too:

I'm excited to see this feature scheduled! With this report, I think that homebank will eventually become the #1 open source finance software.

In quicken this is probably the income/expense by category
here's a capture

But I definitely prefer that one:

Hi all,

I'm very excited to see this feature brought to life, too!

Here is another possible kind of data visualisation, one line per category:

Just an idea ;)

Hello - just to say thank you for working on this. It's the most useful report for me from MS Money and I'd finally be able to drop it if it appears in Homebank. And Windows too!
