Can't adjust opening balance on checking account
How do I adjust the opening balance of my checking account?
I have a payee for my credit card as "starting balance" but I can't use this when in my Checking account. This then screws up my budget because I constantly have money that needs budgeted, but it's not actually available. When I use "today's balance", it just creates an inflow to be budgeted - but there's nothing to budget!
If the amount in your checking account is more than it was before you entered the "Starting Balance" transaction, then definitely the money in the budget will increase. (It always equals your cash on hand.)
If the current month's TBB does not increase despite an inflow categorized as TBB in a cash-based account, then you very likely had a negative TBB in the future. In other words, those additional funds were "consumed" in support of your overbudget condition in a future month.
Also verify the inflow transaction is not in italics (dated in the future).
