Hi

Is it possible to subtract one revenue account from another using alternate hierarchy?

Or we have to use the Rules?

Thanks,

Mikki

    Your options come down to either

    1. Calculate account A as B-C (Where B & C are both revenue)
    2. Create a stat account as a dyanmic account rule populate it as B-C

    But yeah, rules are the only way to do what you want.

    Hi. If you have two revenue accounts and you want to subtract one from the other you will have to use a rule. The hierarchy cannot do that for you (one revenue, one expense account, yes, but not netting two revenue accounts).
