Thank you for that. It does present a bit of a problem - after some fiddling about I did realise that checking the - add to account now box does put the transactions in as uncleared. However, that does leave the question of the relevance of leaving the scheduled item in the schedule as the transactions are now all in the account! Also, I have some regular transactions that simply 'go on forever' I did set the number of these to 999 - result, it was entered 999 times in the account when I hit the check box. This then removes the usefulness of the cleared/uncleared checkbox in the accounts screen - setting it to uncleared just shows the account thousands of pounds overdrawn!! Any future plan to make these scheduled payments automatically entered as the date arrives - as per MS Money and others?
