GNUcash - Split Transactions
Am I the only one to use Split Transactions?
I have tried importing QIF files from Quicken and setting up "test" accounts, and either way, the totals in Split Transactions get reversed.
Why use them? Say you and your friend go 50/50 for a meal. The bill is 20 pounds and so your friend gives you 10 and you pay the bill by cheque.
You have paid 10 pounds for dining and withdrawn 10 pounds cash in reality. So you split your cheque on your ledger over two types of payment.
If you try this in GNUcash, you get 10 pounds cash withdrawn plus 10 pounds dining expense = 20 pounds credit! Similarly split transactions consisting of credits become debits!
I have tried to open the "report a bug" in the help file but it only allows general Gnome bugs there is nowhere for GNU cash. And I cannot find a report bug link on the GNU cash website itself.
Anyone else had this problem and has it been reported?
