Overspending on Credit is Red Not Orange

My grocery category is showing in red, stating that I've overspent in credit and cash.  I have overspent, but I only use my credit cards so it should be orange.  I tried deleting and re-entering which didn't help and I can't figure out why they are showing in red instead of orange.

    I don't think any of this is accidentally FERPA, but just FYI the picture you attached is not of your budget, it's of a student management system of some sort.

    What does the inspector say when you click on the category? 

    Also, you can search by category and date in "All accounts." Search for categorized to groceries in November, and you'll be able to see all transactions and ensure that they are all from your credit account. Shouldn't be too difficult as we are only 9 days in!

    It looks like one or both of those credit card accounts had a positive balance when the spending happened. 

    When a credit card has a positive balance, the spending is treated like cash.

    If the credit card didn't really go positive, a good old reconciliation may be in order!

  • Oh Interesting.  One of the cards does currently have a positive balance on it.  So, once the card is negative again it will go back to orange?
