Also explain what you mean by “transferring to Ver 2.6.3”: Did you upgrade GnuCash (from what version?) or import the data from a different program?

With respect, I don't think this actually is a user issue. It may be a
user question, but I think it involves a bug.

Myself, Martin, and a third person (I received a private email from them
- they can identify themselves if they want to), all had problems here
with converting existing scheduled transactions from earlier Gnucash
versions to later. I think it happened around 2.5.5. See my email from
the mailing list at

In my case, the symptoms were a bit different to Martin's, but I suspect
the same underlying cause. I've been deleting each of my scheduled
transactions and recreating them, which seems to fix them. All my
transactions are in $AU.

The few that I have left show a symptom of rounding the created
transaction to the nearest whole dollar when they are automatically created.
