I've never really been able to use the automatic transaction number feature (the ... button in the transaction dialog) because of how my bank numbers things. I want to use that button when I am writing checks to automatically put in the next number from my checkbook (for this account that number <1000). My bank uses transaction numbers of >10000 for online bill payments and very large numbers for transfers. Since MMEX just adds 1 to the max transaction number, I get a very large random number plus 1.

I've tweaked the source on my system to the following. When calculating the next transaction number, it will ignore transfers and any transaction number over 10000 when computing the max.

Code: Select all

I'm not checking this into svn because every bank has different requirements, and I don't think we could make something general enough to work for all users, but in case anyone wants to use this mod too, I thought I'd share.
