Because, when you enter a payslip, Manager creates a double entry. The credit goes to Employee clearing account, which does not allow tracking codes since it is a balance sheet account. The debit goes to Wages & salaries, which does allow tracking codes.
No, I mean exactly the opposite. As I’ve explained to you already in another topic, the actual payment to the employee affects only balance sheet accounts.
I did not say that. I only pointed out that understanding the results you obtain in a custom report can be challenging. Manager is a complex program that writes and calls data in a complex database. As users, we don’t have visibility into everything that happens, so creating reports that extract and process data from the database isn’t necessarily an obvious process.
I don’t know if you are aware of this, but until the exact day you first posted on the forum, this capability did not exist at all. You had to be able to code SQL queries to obtain even crude custom reports. There was no documentation at all. Since then, the feature has evolved rapidly, and is still changing. Few people have much experience with it. And the only Guide covering it is fairly simple. So please don’t complain when people are trying to answer your many questions.
Yes, but what puzzles you about the report is directly related to how payslips work and is possibly the explanation for what you see.
This means the developer does not consider things to be program bugs that have not been duplicated in more than one installation. If you had posted a complete screen shot of your custom report definition, I would have duplicated it by now, in less time than it took you to write a post complaining about it. The fact is, over the past several weeks, I’ve spent considerable time helping you personally. And now, I’ve probably spent more time answering your latest post than it would have taken to duplicate or explain why you’re seeing what you think is wrong.
Actually, no one creates more original bug reports than me. And every one currently in the bugs category was placed there by me. But there is no point in putting something there and diverting resources if the software is not malfunctioning. Misinterpretation of how the software works does not mean there is a bug.
So, I suggest that if you want help understanding why you are seeing what you do, you post the full custom report definition.
