I've recently made several changes to my existing bank accounts, and have not had any luck finding this topic covered in any of the on-line help in Quicken.

For the record, I am using Quicken Deluxe 2000.

Previously, I had entered minimum balance requirement data and alerts for checking, savings, etc, as well as credit limits for the credit cards and lines. This has worked well for me for several years.

My current account requires that I keep a certain "combined" balance between several accounts. Is there an easy way to handle this? I tend to run the checking account balance lower when I know that I have adequate funds in other accounts to avoid service charges. So far, my choices seem to be to change the balance minimum on a regular basis (as the savings balances change), ignore the frequent alerts that I am at or below the minimum that I have set, or to delete the minimum alert entirely.

Has anybody else found a workable solution for this one?
