I have 2 IRA mutual funds to which I make regular monthly deposits. These deposits are listed as scheduled transactions, and I enter them into my checking account register weeks ahead of time as a reminder to myself.
In months where I subsequently decide to not make the IRA deposit, I then simply delete the transaction from the checking account register. THAT is exactly when the problem occurs --- As soon as I do that, the balance for the IRA account in the list of accounts to the left of the screen goes up into the millions (along with my calculated net worth). - Oh, if only it were so! LOL.
Correcting this is a PITA to find the offending entry in the account. Luckily, I use GoBack to "go back", but even that is a PITA. So, my questions are:
1. Why does this happen? 2. How else do I remove the entry for a deposit to the IRA in a way that doesn't screw up the account balance?
