I do, but that's ok. Remember, this was based on a hunch, not proof. If the setup file doesn't actually remove sub-category info, I won't be upset. However, the last time we were told to just print summary reports for an anticipated setup file, I remember wishing I had printed detail ones. I see no harm in taking lessons from the past (CUBS, for example). If I'm wrong, I don't think anyone will complain.

Yes, I'm a beta tester. No, I did not lose sub-category info. I will also point out, however, that I don't think I've received this anticipated set-up file yet. Maybe I have, but then again, as a beta-tester I was never given the following instruction:
It is important that no finance work be done in MLS on that day or any other day thereafter until the setup file is processed by MLS.
I conclude, therefore, that something more is coming down the pipe than what I've already seen. Again, I may be wrong. Finally, the only times LUS asks me to print finance reports is when a setup file MAY cause a loss of information in my sub-categories.

I would also curious to know if others who have upgraded to 3.4.1 have seen any changes in their finance reports or if everything has stayed as it was.
