Dividing Expenses into direct and overhead

The old DOS book keeping software I’ve been using has the option of identifying expenses as Direct or Overhead and allows reports to use those to determine what to show. Medical would be overhead; groceries would be direct. It would be MOST helpful if KMyMoney allowed this.

Can you still tag this with the kmymoney tag (because I can’t do it for you)?

I don’t understand the term direct and overhead. Can you provide the native (German) terms?

I don’t know what the German terms would be. Overhead expenses are those we don’t have direct control over and are necessary for our function. Medical and insurance costs are normal examples. Direct expenses are those we can control, to some degree - such as utilities, gasoline, groceries. and so on.

I did discover that I can put categories under categories and this seems to solve my problem.
