Have to agree - this is silly, if I'm on a TB or a P&L or Balance sheet and click on a number, I expect to see a screen or report showing me that number.
What's worse though and, for me equally annoying, is that when looking at a balance sheet account on screen with it's nice b/fwd & c/fwd balances, if you chose to export to CSV, the balances vanish.
Latha, there have been numerous requests for improvements to these reports with the biggest being for CB to replicate standard "activity" reports, "General Ledger" reports or, as Kevin sets out, "Ledgers" Reports. In other words, what I trained on and produced by hand 40 years ago, a Nominal Ledger. Either the Export>General Ledger>CSV or the "Transactions All>CSV" should be this, but they are not.
