Import missing a few transactions - bug or anomaly?
I’m a longtime YNAB4 user and just migrated to the new/improved nYNAB. (I think that’s what you guys are calling it).
Anyway - I linked two separate accounts last night - one Citibank Credit Card and one Bank of America Checking Account.
in BOTH cases - after the import, the reconcile didn’t match. After digging transaction-by-transaction, i found that BOTH accounts were missing a handful (4-6) transactions in the early July 2018 (first couple weeks) time frame.
Everything was there before and after those couple of weeks, and once I manually added them in YNAB, my reconciles were to the penny.
This seems really strange that it would happen on two totally different accounts/banks.
Anyone see this before?
Hi Fireproof !
That is definitely odd! I've heard of hiccups during migration and usually a fresh migration fixes the issue, but it's odd that those specific transactions were skipped. Was there anything special about them in YNAB 4?
Now that you've found the cause of the discrepancy, and rectified things, you should be good to go moving forward, but I like to solve mysteries when we can! :)Reply
Oh you know what - that might be it. I wasn't up to date. So I bet those missing transactions were the GAP between my previously imported transactions in YNAB4 and the new directly imported transactions through the new Web App - only being able to go so far back.
I think you solved the mystery!Reply
I'm new to all this, but I found this forum post trying to solve the same issue. I started in early October. In one account, a single transaction (an inter-account transfer) was missing from a download - but another transaction on the same date was present. It's playing hell with reconciling accounts!Reply
Sorry to keep poking at this! I'm now working on updating the transaction register for a credit card. It's got a discrepancy on the current amount of almost three hundred dollars ($292.46) and I haven't entered a single transaction into this register by hand - all of it has been downloaded by import.
This is made more challenging by the fact that the credit card website doesn't show a running balance. I don't know if the "beginning balance" import matches the balance from that day on the credit card, although I assume it would be.
I did add the Toolkit to get a running balance on YNAB, because I find it helps me see where any discrepancies are. I wish it was a regular feature instead of an add-on.Reply
