How do I add a business banking account?

When you add a new account, Quicken adds it to the Account List (choose Tools menu > Account List). In most cases, you'll want to add all of your household's accounts in the same Quicken data file - (The data file you use in Quicken. It represents a collection of Quicken accounts. Adding accounts to the same Quicken data file enables you to easily enter transfer transactions between accounts, and to include any or all accounts in the same file in reports. In cases when you need to keep accounts separate (such as when you maintain personal and business accounts), you might want to have two data files.) - so that you can track all your finances in one place.
