When pending transactions clear, do they clear to the date the payment was made or to the date when the transaction clears? Is there a way for it be the date it clears?
I export my transactions into a spreadsheet with macros so I can keep a close track on my financials. I track Cashflows and Net Worth separately but any changes to cashflows should match the difference in Net Worth. However, they do not match. The reason is because of pending transactions. The date on the pending transactions is always when the payment was made, so it exports with all the transactions data for the week I am exporting the data; however, because that charge still hasn't hit an account, it will not affect my Net Worth.
I was wondering if there was any way the date for the pending payment to be the date it clears (not when the payment was actually made) - meaning it already hit an account. That way, when I export the data for the week, I will be able to export all transactions that have cleared that week, thus matching my Cash Flows with my Net Worth.
Thank you in advance!!
