    In sum, it would be great to have a tool to export the client/supplier details as a .txt or .csv format which would be compatible with, say Google Contacts, or thunderbird contacts.

    The main goals are:
    1. Transfering contact lists to/from GnuCash and Address books of other apps.
    2. Not have to re-write all client/supplier details when you scrap/move/replace your GnuCash installation etc.

    This might be possible very quickly by writing a python script that opens the
    gnucash file, queries for all customers, and writes out some text-based format.
    Example for working with a Customer object in python is in
    src/optional/python-bindings/example_scripts/simple_business_create.py

    Hi,

    I used GnuCash for sometimes, and found it generates a lot log
    files(XXXX.xml.2010*.txt or .xac) in the same directory of my account data
    file. I have 3 account data file for different purpose, When I look the
    directory, it's not easily to locate my data file.

    Could you let gnucash write those log files into seperate directory?

    For example, my data file is on 'accounting' directory, and file name is
    'mydata.xml'. Then create a directory 'accounting/mydata.xml.log/', and write
    all log files into that folder. It will make the account data folder much
    clean.

    Thanks.

    Thank you Christian, for pointing out that it is possible to have side by side
    bar-graphs using the Asset Barchart report. The default setting for that
    report is "use stacked bars" and I failed to note the check box. That report
    may be somewhat helpful when comparing stocks/funds that I already own. But, on
    further reflection, it will not be possible to display the Index information I
    am hoping for without a new feature.

    Here is the dilemma. To use the current Asset Barchart report to do a side by
    side comparison, it would be necessary to create bogus "Index accounts" that
    duplicate the dollar and share data for each real stock/fund in your portfolio.
    This, of course, would create chaos in GnuCash totals.

    To be able to capture index data without creating chaos, it is necessary to
    first establish a new "Type" category "Stock/Fund Index", that can be
    associated with a specific stock/fund, that doesn't impact real ledger totals.
    Ideally, it would be wonderful if GnuCash could create a stock/fund graph, like
    Morningstar, that includes the fund you own plus two indexes. Here is an
    example: http://quote.morningstar.com/fund/f.aspx?t=FAIRX&t1=1295434825 In
    Moringstar's case they have to use a $10,000 growth scenario. But GnuCash could
    offer real dollar and percentage information.

    I sure hope that a GnuCash developer will be intrigued by this possibility. You
    can do it! I know you can!

    Thanks for your consideration,

    Don

    Isn't this available in the other barchart reports?

    The other points are interesting suggestions, however I don't know whether any
    of the developers are going to work on that in the near future.
