Suspicious goal amount

Hello, fairly new to YNAB and trying to understand how to fund my goal. I'm getting odd numbers for this month's Underfunded amount.

I had a very large auto maintenance event this month. I used money in my emergency fund category to cover it. To do so, I transferred the needed amount to my Auto Maintenance category. I would like to replenish my emergency fund over the next two years so I created a goal to do so. In future months, it shows my goal amount to be on the order of $400 per month, which is what I was expecting. But this month, it says I need to fund it to nearly the amount that I withdrew to stay on track! If I hypothetically did that, my goal would be met this month, not in two years. What's going on?

  • It's trying to make up for the negative budget entry. Create the goal in next month's budget area instead.
