Negative values in bank transaction rule allocations not allowed?

I have a memorised transaction setup for our loan interest which credits the interest expense account and debits the RWT withholding tax account.

When I tried to add this as a rule, it wouldn't allow a negative amount on the RWT as per attached screenshot.  Am I going about this the wrong way, or should the program allow me do this?

I also do this with my interest and RWT except I have memorised the transaction as a Jornal Entry that automatically records at the dates I have set (thus does not need to be set up as a rule) -  then when I upload my bank statement it automatically matches to the transaction....

Don't the date's have to match for it to automatically match though?  The dates of the automatic payments are often different if if the date is not a working day for example.

I edit the transaction dates manually if need be.  

Hopefully someone else out there in the community may have an answer for this - would be good to know if there is another way around it.

I do the same as Toni, and when the bank feeds have matched, generally the ones that are a day or so out, I change the dates in the register to the actual date on the bank transaction list and then all match.  I havent found another way either.
