    Again thank you for your prompt response. It appears the feature "Future Scheduled Transactions" was added in gnucash 2.4.2. After downloading 2.4.4 using GetDeb.net sources I have tried out the suggested feature. Unfortunately this falls short of a usable forecast. What I need to do is select assets of interest (not all of my assets) for example >select bank checking accounts only and apply scheduled transactions. A graphical output with daily balance allows me to see the account balance and plan for the future transactions visually and plan ahead. The "Future Scheduled Transactions" text report is unusable in for me in it's current form. I really need to be able to customize the included accounts at will.

    Hi. Thank you for your interest in the suggestion.
    In the previous program (Quicken) projections are made based on the scheduled transactions. Ideally one could select the asset accounts to include in the forecast and the program would calculate future charges to the selected accounts given the scheduled future transactions and output a month or multi-month line graph with the projected balances for each day. For me it seems implicit that the program would allow me to look ahead. No budget would be required, only the asset accounts and scheduled transactions would be used to project (or guess). Perhaps it would also be helpful to allow one to input in the transaction template if a scheduled transaction is variable or not (eg my cable account is typically the same each month whereas my gas bill varies depending on the seasons). For monthly financial planning and money management this feature would be of great value to me and I suspect to many other users. Please let me know if I can clarify anything further.
