MS Money Home and Business setting up receipts and payments RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like three items to be associated, so if one is deleted they all are.

    A billable item to a customer and two payments to subcontractors

    How should I set this up?

  • I don't think Money will be able to do it... , but if a it can be done, a split transaction would be involved.  Experiment.  You can set up a transaction as a Split by making the Category of a transaction to be a split. You can have a net payment/expense broken into various categories. A split can add up to zero. Unfortunately you cannot put a transfer into a split.

    So maybe this will help approximate what you would like to do. Probably not.

  • Picking up on Cal's note that a split can add up to zero -

    A 'withdrawal' from some account to 'pay to' someone ~ with a negative 'amount' ~ is exactly the same as a (positive) 'deposit' from that someone [so far as Money is concerned]. Transactions where the sum of the splits adds up to zero will always appear in the 'deposit' column (of your account) even though you may think of the transaction as a 'payment'.
