pre-excising Credit card balance

I really don't get it and need a very short answer. I have look and searched but don't see what I'm looking for. I currently have a large balance on my credit card which I am paying off, but it takes time. When I added my CC and import the transaction, YNAB show my outstanding balance as money available to budget.  Is can't be right. In reality this is money I need to pay off, and need to budget for this.    I understand that if I buy coffee on my card to day I should have budgeted it. and the money comes from the budget. I'm not referring to that. I'm only asking about pre-excising balance.

  • Is the balance showing as a positive or negative number? It should be a negative number.

  • It's showing a a positive.    can you tell me how to just remove the CC completely from YNAB.  I'm so frustrated with YNAB that I'm about to delete the account. It should be this hard.

      Violet Mainframe Just switch the direction of the starting balance transaction so that it is an outflow.
