Credit Card Account Working Balance and Payment out of sync
I'm relatively new to YNAB and love it so far. I have several credit cards and I don't have any overspending or over budgeted items, but my payment and working balance are out of sync.
Any ideas on how I can resolve this?
Thank you for that suggestion. I don't have any of those common errors. I've gone all the way back. I figured it out but I think there's a glitch in the system. I received a credit from my CC the day before I made a payment on my credit card. The strange behavior that I'm seeing is that if I have any kind of credit adjustments prior to a credit card payment, it doubles the amount which is what resulted in my error. I'll let you know if there are any updates after I submit this to YNAB.
What "fixed it" was to change the date of my adjustment to the day after the payment and everything was in balance. Is that weird or something I'm not understanding with how credit cards work in YNAB.
So here's my error in the first pic. But when I change the date, after the 6th, it is fine.

I don't see a way around messing with the dates to get around this
Again, all you need to do is add funds to the Payment category until it covers the account balance. I know it seems like you're giving up some of your money, but you're really not. Again, YNAB already gave you the funds to fix it when it increased TBB (when the account balance went positive).
