Insert Running Balance from Another Account into Register?

FortyEightFan Member ✭✭
I have an entry (hold) in my checking account registry for my credit card. Today I manually update the amount I owe on my credit card. Is there a way to have Quicken update the amount based on the balance of another account? (Similar to how a cell in Excel can reference another cell in a different worksheet.)

I'm using Quicken Mac 6.2.1.

    No. There are no variable amounts.

    If a transaction in your checking account needs to affect the credit card account it needs to be a Transfer to the credit card account.  Or please explain more details and what you're trying to do.

    It sounds to me like they want to enter a transaction in their checking account to pay the outstanding balance on their credit card and to have the transaction amount automatically update when the credit card balance changes. Which, as jacobs points out, can't be done.
