Transaction history messed up, budget completely trashed now. Possible to roll-back to previous state? e.g. yesterday?
My available amounts no longer match the actual balances in my accounts (that's accounting for pending vs. cleared, credit cards, etc.) but 1-2 weeks ago they did match. To the penny. So something went pear-shaped in the last couple weeks.
When I started to dig into it, I discovered hundreds of dollars of uncleared transactions, including many transactions around 5/1-5/14 that don't exist in the bank records, such as transfers between accounts, that additionally have been assigned to the wrong account, e.g. transfer $900 from acct A to acct B, but the bank has no record of $900 being transferred between any of my accounts within 10 days of that date.
I tried to delete some of the uncleared problematic transactions, but got a warning that the matching transaction in the other account was cleared. One time I hit cancel, but the transactions were deleted anyway. I attempted to clean up the other uncleared transactions and reconcile, and now my budget is trashed. The "to be budgeted" is reporting thousands of dollars that don't exist, which is about 10 times more than the original problem I was trying to solve, which was a discrepancy of about $500.
Is it possible to roll back my budget to the state it was in yesterday? Or maybe to 2 weeks ago when it actually did agree with reality? At this point I cannot trust YNAB at all. Admittedly the current problem is my own doing, but even before that, when I could not find any problems between the last time the totals agreed with reality and now, it was still reporting that I had $500 more than I actually did.
Now that I was able to get back to the previous state with "undo" I can see what went wrong: at some point, it looks like from August of 2019, one of my accounts was getting transfers recorded that were not happening in that account:
Actual: $n from B into C
Recorded: $n from B into A and $n from A into C
Which seems like it's a wash and doesn't affect the balances anywhere, except now I've got a whole bunch of uncleared transfers that are connected to cleared transactions in the other account that I now need to go and manually clean up. The bigger issue are these:
Actual: $n from B into account not in YNAB
Recorded: $n from B into A
Which will mess up the balances. Again, uncleared transfers connected to cleared transfers.
Is there an easy way to navigate to the other transaction in a transfer pair?
