Debit or Credit "balance must be" field

What happens if the “Balance must be” field in an account is not selected? Loss/gains accounts should be able to be both Debit or Credit at some point, but when I tried to create an opening balance in journal entry which was negative due to the period of the month, the system did not allowed me to do so, therefore I wonder if I don’t select Debit nor Credit, how does the system behaves. Thank you.

Balance must be field would enforce a field to have Debit or Credit amount. So in case you have an account that can have both, you must not enter anything in that “balance must be” field.


Thank you very much.
