Account-Based Calculation Changes the Input Data

Hi,

I am using a basic account based calculation rule to copy all account movements to new accounts which are assigned in the rule:

This basic rule is working well when it is copying the amount from source account to destination account. But in the end, it overwrites the source account data and make it triple.

I am using it for 2017 September and I am having this problem. But when I run it on June, I do not have this problem at all.
This is happening to all accounts. What can be the reason?

    Sorry for the late answer,
    The reason was: underneath the Account Based Calculation rule, there were 3 empty lines created and not deleted. And these three empty lines(empty means "all" in this case) defining "all" to "all" rule regarding with the whole data. So it was also triplicating everything. It is important to be careful maintaining the account based calculations especially the lines which are created by "Add" button beneath the rule...

    • "It is important to be careful maintaining the account based calculations especially the lines which are created by "Add" button beneath the rule..." - golden words :)

      P.S. Also - test first simple rules with few lines!
