Sorry, but I have to disagree as I have the statements to prove it. This is not
hypothetical. This is real world.  I feel that one of us is over-thinking this. 

According to their respective statements one account shows one date, a
different account shows another,...... for the same transaction. This is an
`issue` in the software because we are referencing against the date and not the
The transaction # should be the binding element not the date. 

We already know that a transaction can be split across multiple accounts. It
would appear that although KMM assigns a transaction # it actually uses the
date for reference. If KMM used the Transaction # for reference instead, each
side could have a different date.

As such, each side can/may perform any (additional) calculations using the date
referenced on it's side respective of the transaction, such as interest.

[as viewed by Checking]
transaction# (assigned by KMM)|trans_date | post date| transaction| amount
1234567890                                    |24dec14     | 29dec14  |      
to CC    |too much

[as viewed by CC]
transaction# (assigned by KMM)|trans_date | post date| transaction| amount
1234567890                                    29dec14     | 24dec14  |from
checking|never enough

all that has occurred is a 'perspective' has been assigned to each side held
together by the transaction # instead of by the date. Much like one side sees a
credit and the other showing a debit.

As far as interest calculations go, my CC balance is reduced on 24dec and
interest charged on the payment amount stops then, but checking balance is not
reduced until the 29th therefor collecting interest until then.
