Getting account balance for specific days

Looking through the documentation I see the getStartBalance and getCurrentBalance functions, but what if I want the balance on a particular day? (Actually, I want the balance each day for a small set of consecutive days.) Is there a way to get the API to return the balance of an account on a specific day or do I need to iterate through transactions an figure it out manually from the starting balance?

    Hi Jim,

    You'll need to iterate through. Generally we don't usually need to calculate daily balances, and when we do it has more specific requirements (like being displayed in a register, or having a rolling average in a report or graph). It's pretty easy to do though, and the transaction iteration can probably be done in a handful of lines of code.

    Thanks!
