I would like to know if it is possible to use the balance as entry on a given date, instead of the change. Using some generic accounts, I know the balance End-of-Month, but I have to calculate the difference compared to the previous period to have PP show the new balance. It would be great to have the option to provide the balance directly.
No, but you can let PP do the calculation. Just enter
567.89-123.45 or whatever into the input field.
I didnt know that feature, that helps with the manual input indeed. It will not help while importing, or is there a trick as well?
No, for importing you would need to write a script that preprocesses your data and does the calculation.
