Reconcile Not Matching Budget

Everything has cleared except 3 transaction, however I have more in the bank than I should. Any thoughts besides going line by line for the last 10 days what I should look at?

  • Reconciliation IS the process of going line by line down the bank's statement. Are you perhaps instead systematically going down YNAB's list looking for a match on the bank's list?

    Your "last 10 days" comment suggests this account reconciled correctly 10 days ago? Is that true?

      Matthew So... I take it you're not a hexadecimal guy?

      Matthew LOL! What a beautiful number. Glad you get it now. 😂

      Interesting that it's so close to my net worth. (I might be off a few decimal places.)

      Matthew I'm also pleased and impressed that you went to the trouble to actually convert it to decimal correctly!

      I have no 48879 with you.

  • Pro-Tip: Take the difference in balance and look for transactions in YNAB or your bank statement that match that value. If I'm off by $23.47, then there's usually a single $23.47 transaction somewhere that I missed. Makes scanning the bank statement that much easier.

      Aquamarine Rhythm I do it totally differently. I go systematically down the bank's list matching+clearing in YNAB (or entering+clearing or editing+clearing). YNAB is typically sorted by outflow with previously reconciled transactions hidden to make matching very easy. Assuming it was previously reconciled, this process has never failed for me.

    • dakinemaui Yep that's my 2nd go-through. 9 times out of 10 I look for a certain dollar value and find the problem transaction in roughly 3 seconds. If that doesn't work, I do exactly as you describe.
