Hello - I am new here and trying to create a base for following cash flows in my various accounts, cash or petty cash.

Thanks to sources I found here, I succeeded to create deposit and withdrawal through two tables, one for accounts and one for transactions, and a rollup structure to calculate the balances of each account under the deposit/withdrawal transactions. However my concern is related to "transfer" transactions between accounts. When it is a "transfer" transaction, I want the rollup to subtract the amount value from the transferring account and add the amount value to the receiving account. I mean, when the number of accounts and the rollup transactions becomes two, I cannot find a practical (or sophisticated! 🙂 ) solution for such purpose, so that;

(a) I select the "transfer" as the transaction type;

(b) I enter the amount of the transaction;

(c) I select the From and To accounts separately;

(d) The amount becomes withdrawal for first account and deposit for the second account.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

Thank you all.

What if you created an automation that triggers whenever a "Transfer" transcation type is created, and its action would be to create a new record for the rollup calculation?  So the first record would be -50 to Account A, and the second record would be +50 to Account B

Might not work depending on how your data's set up though and if you could provide screenshots of your table setup that'd be very helpful
