How to change the "Opening amount" after creating an account

Asked by Ashim Jain on 2012-04-03

Very often, one needs to quickly create an account so current entries at hand can be entered before they are forgotten. However, once an account is created, the Opening Amount cannot be altered -- which was a question that was asked at the time the account was created.

While there are valid reasons not to allow modification of Opening amount, there are equally compelling reasons to allow it. After all, if we are able to delete/change regular entries so why not this?

Please help if you know the answer or add this feature to your great program. I really like all other aspects.

Thank you for creating a wonderful application and making it free!

One does not simply.. oh wait :) actually opening amount is just a transaction automatically created for this account. If you go to the blotter you can edit this transaction (the first one for this account) and change the amount.

Thanks!
