Negative amount in "To Be Budgeted" after a CC charge
Hope someone can help. I LOVE YNAB. Never had this issue. My wife and I reconciled our budget & accounts today, then budgeted our midmonth pay.
After we had finished, we made a CC purchase. After the purchase, the CC amount caused our To Be Budgeted to go in the Red/negative. I have never had this issue. Even when I go "overbudget" in a category using my CC, it never affects To Be Budgeted but shows they "typical" cc icon in negative and then the charge shows up in green in my CC category.
Here are the steps we've taken so far:
- Tried changing the transaction to another category
- Deleted the Transaction and input it again
- Opened up YNAB in MS Edge and tried the first 2 over again but with the same results
- Opened a "ticket" in YNAB support
Do you all have any YNAB wisdom for us? Thanks in advance.
You need to look at the November header both before and after you enter the transaction (equivalently, with the transaction amount set to $0 and then the correct value). One of those header numbers will change, which will help diagnose what's going on.
Is the transaction a normal -- not a split -- transaction outflow categorized to Work Reimb?
