Cool, that is doing what I expected (and, to an extent, what you originally 
expected)  Total cash flow = 0 

Now, if you also select the Liabilities:Credit Card, then it should go back 
to "missing" the $4292 transaction.

Do you see now how the cash flow report works?

re-run the original report, and I'll bet that both the L:Credit Card and 
L:Loan accounts are selected (or unselected).  There is no flow of cash shown 
between two accounts that are included within the same "selection status".

I think that you are not quite grasping what the cash flow report shows, which 
may well not be what you (and your CPA) are expecting.
