Importing & transfers between accounts
Question asked by Mike Ellis 4 years ago
I have imported two statements from accounts A and B and in the period concerned there has been a transfer between accounts. Explaining the transfer on both statements results in duplicate transactions in one of the accounts. I believe that this is understood and has been recommended as a change on more than one occasion. OK
I followed some advice I found on this forum along the lines of delete the transactions in the import process from one of the accounts to avoid the duplicate problem. This enables account A to be reconciled. However, account B can no longer be reconciled because it is missing the transactions that are required to reduce the balance. i.e I have deleted them.
How do I manage the 'explain statement' process for both statements and still get both accounts to reconcile?
The only thing that I can think of if to fully import both statements and then retrospectively delete the duplicate transactions. Is there a better way of doing this. Surely there must be.
