Split transactions

Another cause of "disappearing" transactions is entering past 
transactions in the general journal. The general journal by default only 
displays transactions for the last month. So if you enter a transaction 
that's older than this it would disappear.

This should not happen when you enter the transaction straight into your 
checking account's register. This register can be opened by double-
clicking on your checking account in the Account Hierarchy page.
