16: bad-txns-in-belowout (code -26) With the Bitcoin Core Console I get this code when I'am done signing my transaction. I get this message instead of a transaction ID number. What is it ?

It means the total value of the UTXO spent by your transaction's inputs is less than the total total of the outputs.

Put otherwise, it's trying to create money.
