Yes the journal was created from the banking transaction I tagged as being salary.
I’m not sure what you mean by “If so, there’s likely to be a line there which is what created the bank transaction in the first place. If you remove this, it will remove the bank transaction.” - the entries on the banking page are from an imported .qif file. I tagged them as salary, then edited the journal (which made them disappear). - The journal didn’t create the banking transaction.
I’m changing the journal to look more like the example in here:
i.e. adding lines for gross wages, PAYE, NI etc, and removing the existing lines (because the automatically created journal entry added the amount as Net wages, but they’re gross wages).
When you tag a bank transaction in this way, it’s converted to a journal, so in effect the transaction is part of the journal itself. If you remove the line from the journal which is tied to one of your bank nominal codes (e.g. 1200), then it will remove the bank transaction too.
