I am trying to set up a system-wide transaction report. So, I have selected the Transaction Report, and configured it as follows:-
* Select all the accounts in the system
* Display: Date, Number, Desc, Account Name, Other Account Name
* Amount: Double
* Style: Multi-line
* Primary Key: Account Name
* Primary Sort Order: Ascending
* Secondary Key: Date
* Secondary Sort Order: Ascending
The report writer then dutifully produces a beautiful report showing all the splits on each transaction, much as it would appear in the general ledger. In short, it is *exactly* what I need, apart from just one little thing: the report shows each txn N times, where N is the number of splits it contains!
This is, of course, perfectly correct behaviour. However, it isn't actually terribly useful when all I want to produce is a report of the last week's/month's activity - effectively listing an extract of the general ledger.
Now, there are other built-in reports, but the General Journal report seems to be pretty non-configurable, and apparently includes all transactions since the system began, and the General Ledger report produces the same report as above.
So, is there some configuration option I have overlooked that will prevent all the txn repeats, or some other way of getting my desired result?
