Matching Split Transactions
I'm trying to match a split transaction and the "match" option in the dropdown just stays light grey (not selectable).
I would think that if a bank total arrives and matches a split total for the same dollar amount within a few days of the transaction I typed in manually, YNAB should know what to do and offer to match it so I won't have to do any retyping or deleting.
In this fictional example, I'm tracking my holiday giving. This one wants a transaction fee, so I want to track both in separate Categories.
Wonderful Charity - Debit 1,000.00
Payment Processing Service Charge - Debit 5.00
Total Transaction - Debit 1,005.00
This was a credit charge to my bank debit card, so naturally it'll just get pulled from the checking account like with any other use of that debit card.
So a few days later, the charge comes through as "1,005.00" as I would expect. The issue now is that YNAB won't let me "match" the incoming bank transaction with the split that I typed in on the day I made the donation.
Can anybody advise me on this, or am I getting into "new feature request" territory?
Thanks in advance!
I can understand why this is the case, but it is a minor nuisance. My example: I paid DMV for auto registration. The payment service they use charged a fee. I created a split transaction showing the renewal cost and the fee. However, when the transactions came through, they were two separate items; so there was no way to match. Ultimately, I just deleted my manual transaction and categorized the two separate charges from the bank. I doubt it's a major problem faced by most YNABers, worthy of much dev effort.
