botched checking account reconciliation


M

Milton Bliss

I pressed keys without looking and finished a reconciliation that wasn't
really finished so Quickbooks inserted a General Journal entry to make the
account balance.

Now I have gone thru and put a ck in the reconcile column of the check
register on all the right entries.

How do I make Quickbooks recalcuate the beginning balance of the next
reconciliation?

Putting those checkmarks (dark black, not light gray) in the reconciled
column, in the check register, will adjust your reconciliation balance. Or
at least it does for me. The problem will be the JE made. If you remember
which transactions you forgot to mark in the reconciliation screen, you can
void the JE, uncheck the manually checked transactions from the check
register, go into reconcile & choose today's date. Use the correct ending
bank balance and check the items you missed previously. Basically you'd be
splitting one bank statement between two reconciliations.
