Income report - categories

Hi all.
Trying to get a report on my income. I have recorded all my income deposits in a Category I've call Income and listed each entry as a deposit.
When I go to do a report I use Reports, Category Reports, Spending by Categories. I get a listing of the deposits but it assumes that this category is an expense one so it only records expenses/withdrawals but no income figures apart from the running total, not the individual amounts.
Is there a way to get the income deposits listed?



PS I tried to search the forums but was told that "income", "report" & "category" were words that were too common hence ignored!

Categories are just a way to classify items, they are not inherently income or expense, they can be used for both. And the "Spending by Categories" report is not biased towards expenses. When I run that report, I see deposit items as well as expense items. So I have to think you are just not setting up your transactions/categories correctly. Can you provide an example of a transaction that is not appearing in the report the way you want it to?
