I have been using GnuCash to manage my checking account for years, and
reconcile it every month. However, when I tried to reconcile it this
month, the "Starting Balance" amount was off by $6.36. It should have
been $497.11 (for example), but instead, that amount was $503.47. When I
try to reconcile my account, it therefore says that I'm off by $6.36.
The previous month's bank statement had an ending balance of 497.11, and
I am sure that everything balanced properly that month. I am really
perplexed as to why last month's ending balance of of 497.11 then
"turned into" this month's "reconciled" value of 503.47. I also checked
every 6.36 transaction that has cleared over the last year, and they all
How do I even begin to troubleshoot or fix this problem? In the short
term I guess I can just add a fake 6.36 transaction and then reconcile
it, but I don't want to have to maintain a bunch of fake transactions in
the long term.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
