Negative expense (credit) entry?
« on: May 29, 2011, 11:49:16 am »
I am trying to enter an expense credit and cannot determine how to enter a negative amount or quantity.  Is this possible?

Situation:  I have recorded an expense to my new company of a personal check written to fund the business startup.  Subsequently, my company wrote a check to me for a portion of the original funded amount (without an invoice).  I have entered the original expense into TimeMaster, but I cannot enter the adjustment/payment as an expense.
Can anyone describe to do this correctly?

Many thanks,

No, we do not allow negative numbers as internally in the database a -1 represents an empty field (thats the way that SQLite works).  If you have the optional Invoice module, you can make a Credit for the amount and it will show on the invoice.  Sorry.
