[GNC] Trial Balance Error

I recently ran a Trial Balance report for the first time.  Debits and credits different by tens of thousands.  Most problems were easy to find and got the difference down to about $161.50.  I walked the difference first by year, then by month and then by day until I found the day where it went from balanced (11/19/20) to unbalanced (11/20/20).  Then ran a transaction report for 11/20/21.  There were only two, sale of a stock and a dividend for another stock.

The dividend entry had a debit with a corresponding credit in the correct accounts.    The stock sale proceeds showed a debit for my sweep account (asset) but no credit for any other account although it showed a credit for the number of shares sold.  Checked the stock account and sweep account and everything looked good.  I ran a balance sheet for the day and assets minus liabilities equaled total equity.  Finally, I did a side by side, line by line comparison of the 11/19/20 and 11/20/20 Trial Balance reports.  Everything matched perfectly with the exception of the bank sweep account and the stock dividend account which reflected the transactions for 11/20/20.  The only other differences was the unrealized gains for stocks and the daily downloaded stock prices from 11/19/20 to 11/20/20.  I do not know what else to do to try to find the error.  Any thoughts or recommendations?
