To create a new entry on a Label Ledger you’ll specify the ID of the Label, as well as a positive or negative amount value (depending on if the purpose is to increase or decrease the amount tied to a Label). The amount tied to a Label cannot go negative, therefore if the amount of the label ledger entry exceeds the current amount tied to a Label then a validation error will be returned.
