Hi,

just started my first steps into Moneydance scripting, having a simple request: Create an automated transaction with a single split. Unfortunately I fail and have no idea why.

Running the attached script I get the following message:

Beginning file /Users/bernhard/Documents/Moneydance-Extension/md-transaction.py at Thu Feb 21 17:35:09 CET 2019
PersonalFinances
[ParentTxn(null) desc=test desc; val=0; stat= ; #splits=0; chk=; acct=Forecast; date=20190225; dirty; splits=; ] Error running script: Traceback (most recent call last):

java.lang.NullPointerException: java.lang.NullPointerException

Looking forward to someone how shows me my mistake

Thanks Bernhard

    Hi Bernhard,

    It's great to see you getting into Moneydance scripting. In this case the NullPointerException is occurring because the miscAccount is null (or 'None' in the python world). It seems like you'll need to check for a missing account or category when creating the transaction.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Sean
