Budget Fixes That Create Overspending

I'm frustrated. I manually categorized two $200 payments in May and budgeted funds to cover them. In fixing balance transfer-related transactions (recording them as transfers between my checking and the credit card), YNAB thinks I overspent on the credit card by $400 since the old categorized transactions were removed. Is there a way to fix this without trying to find $400?

    It's not that you need to "find $400", as far as I can tell based on your brief description. You had previously assigned $400 for those expenses when you categorized those transactions, so you just need to move that $400 from whatever original category you had budgeted the transactions to, to the credit card's Budgeted column instead.
