CC accounts repeatedly do not reconcile

So, I've been having a problem which I think I squashed but then it creeps back in. I auto-download transactions for my CCs and other accounts. For a reason unknown to me I stop being able to reconcile my transactions. I've restarted budgets, removed and re-added accounts, added reconciliation amounts, reconcile every time I access my budget, and have checked every transaction back to the beginning - but no matter what I do it eventually just stops being able to reconcile. It is like there is some hidden value thowing things off.

Has anyone experienced this and if so any idea how to fix it? I just recently renewed but if I can't get this fixed I'm going to have to get a refund and find another budgeting app.experienced

     you mean that you cannot get your bank account (credit card) balance to match YNAB then reality is that there is at least one extra or missing transaction in YNAB. 

    I will caveat this by saying sometimes you can have a small verification hold/charge that never clears and eventually disappears from the credit card but they should be easily identifiable as you might have noticed an unexpected charge already.

    Once you have reconciled at a point you should only have to worry about new transactions. I've got 7 years of transactions without an adjustment transaction. I believe you can do it too!

    If it is something else then happy to help work it out.

  • This is usually caused by giving YNAB a balance that includes pending transactions when reconciling.

  • Make sure you are reconciling to your cleared balance and not your working balance. I’ve never had an issue. If you can’t figure it out, I’d put in a support ticket and get support to look at your budget and tell you what you’re doing wrong.
