Split a transaction with Gnucash

See splitting to understand the purpose of splitting transaction.

  1. Click on the transaction to split.
  2. Click on Split
  3. Decrease the amount in the destination account and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  4. Choose the account where the rest of the amount should go.

This way, if you had a 200$ transaction in your bank account, when you will reduce to 120$ the amount that goes in "Expenses Computer" account, a split of 80$ will appear to cover the balance.

You can both balance this 80$ in another account or only a part of it, which would create another split with the balance and so on until the addition of all your split is equal to the total amount of the transaction.
