More in Accounts Than in Available

My budget bank accounts balances are correct - but they add up to a lot more than my available column shows.  What do I do?

  • There is money in the Available column that is savings for future months. Is that what you mean?

  • The problem started when I wanted to take a savings account out of the list of Budget accounts and move the money to Tracking.  At this point I don't know what step I took that caused the discrepancy.  

    The Budget accounts have the correct balances and I transferred the correct amount to a tracking account. But the Available column shows a lot less than the actual bank accounts have. Is there one of the Resets I should use?

      Cymena just to double-check: you are not including your tracking account balance in what you expect to see in available? The available amount does not include your tracking account; the money you transferred there should be removed from available, corresponding to a transaction you made in YNAB to log the move of money off-budget.

      nolesrule Thanks lots for this tip! I would never have known how to search this but this was exactly what I needed -- plus seeing at the bottom that I could contact Support, which I did. The problem was a closed account with a negative balance which when resolved added the funds back into To Be Assigned. Fixed it, though the logic is still beyond my not at all numeric brain.
