entering paychecks into kmymoney2

Asked by Joe Beall

I'm a recent migrant from XP and MS Money 2002 and am running Karmic. For the most part, I like KMyMoney2 but I've not been able to find a way to enter paycheques and breaking them down from gross to net. This certainly isn't a deal-breaker issue but it would be nice to know if the feature is available.

There is no wizard to enter your paycheck, if that's what you are looking for.

What most of us do is create a schedule. In the schedule you create a split transaction, that's a transaction which has multiple categories and accounts, unlike the normal 1-account, 1-category transactions.
You can enter a split transaction by clicking on the icon of a split.

Thanks to Uwe and Hei for your replies. I was, in fact, looking for a wizard like the one in MS Money and if there is none then that ends the issue. KMyMoney works pretty much perfectly for me otherwise.
Thanks again guys!

Can you help with this problem?
