I just performed a download from my bank and natched the list with our recorded and entered transactions - and everything matched no wierd things.
Clicking DONE, the summary showed I was out of balance by over $-1000
and change and it showed transacrions that were cleared in earlier
balances to have just been be in this one. So I checked my logs ( I
keep a log of every time I backup my files and whether or not the
accounts balanced with the appropriate institution) and the last time I
backed up, the bank was in balamce, so if eveything matched, it should
I then went thru the register and found some transactions as early as
December 2017 a not cleared. Upon further inspecrion, I found some
TX's from earlier this year not clearedm so got out my statements and
saw they had been cleared. I don't know what is going on here and I
think I want to reload from a backup that was last balanced.
Never having done this before, I have looked at what happens when one
does this and details are somewhat nebulous enough that I'm not
confortable doing this without some other advice from the experts.
What I think happens is that the old files are reloaded and now become
the current Quicken files. If I do a TX download, I will get ALL TX's
that are not in the current file. In other words Quicken knows the
last date of download and will request TX's from that date until now.
Is thai correct, and if so, are ther any other things to watch out for
other than all accounts will be returned to the backup date status?
Thanks or your ssistance.
