Transfer funds among base accounts?

I have set up two separate 'base' accounts - one for personal accounts and a separate one for my business. How can I transfer funds between the two? I'm not seeing any options in the Category to select from a different base account. Trying to come up with a workaround, but I'm stumped. Thanks

    I assume you mean you have created two independent data sets, one for your personal finances and one for Business finances.

    Independent is the key thing here there are no linkages between separate data sets. You need to use accounting techniques here to move funds.

    In the personal finances data set you would create two new categories say, Money to Business and Money From Business. Likewise in the Business data set Money to Personal, Money from Personal (name them what you like). Now you just have to enter a transaction into each data set using these new categories to indicate the source/destination of the funds.

    Thank you for answering, that's what I figured. And yes you assumed correctly!
