Check reconciliation gone haywire


A

AFNMD

My checkbook reconciliations have begun to go haywire. Previous ones
which were done correctly now show items as uncleared when they were
cleared. Dates are now changed and starting and ending balances are
different. I have tried going through them and repeating the
reconciliation. Some have accepted the corrections and others have not.

My version of Quicken is 2003 and I have been getting messages that I
needed to upgrade because Intuit was not supporting my "old" version. I
can't help but feel that my problem is related to my "old", unsupported
version.

Any thoughts?

While it could be that, the quirks you mention, are eerily similar to,
what has happened to my e-mail sometimes. Since I have a cable modem, I
am able to constantly download my e-mail without any left on the ISP
server. Anyway, Sometimes without warning, the date on any e-mail in my
Inbox on my PC will, suddenly change to 01/01/1969. I was 5mths. from
my 2nd birthday(May 16, 1967)!!!!

Simply put, upgrade. I have Quicken Deluxe 2005 because, I felt I
needed to upgrade last year, so I did.

I don't believe your problem has anything to do with the age of
your Quicken version. You may have data corruption, or you may
have stumbled onto a bug, but there is no built in loss of
function based on age (this is completely different from loss of
online capability and Intuit support, known as sunsetting about
which you have gotten messages).

There were some Quicken versions (Q2003 was one) that would get
prior reconciliations messed up if the user modified the
category (and possibly other fields: certainly the amount or
cleared status) in a reconciled transaction. The only way to
overcome that problem was to get into the "Resolve" dialog,
delete every statement back to, and including, the oldest
incorrect statement, and re-reconcile (I believe that the
re-reconcile could be done by reconciling all previously
reconciled transactions in one statement, making it somewhat
less cumbersome).
