Increase and Decrease columns for CSV imports are incorrect if it's a liability

Reported by Virgil Dupras | August 25th, 2010 @ 12:29 PM

If we have a CSV file for a liability with 2 amount columns corresponding to increases and decreases in the account, using the "Increase" column on the column that corresponds to amount making the debt increase, and the "Decrease" column corresponding to the column with amounts making the debt decrease, we'll end up with inverted amounts in the main import window.

This problem is more than a simple bug, it's a design mistake. Because we don't know at the CSV parsing stage whether the account is an asset or a liability, the term "Increase" or "Decrease" don't make any sense. Therefore, the terms we use there should be changed to "Debit" and "Credit".
