Spending Report adding wrong :(
Now that we hit the end of the year, I use spending reports to plan what comes ahead.
BUT, the spending Report is summing numbers not correctly.
Attached one example (this error occured at least twice in my reports).
It adds up to 226,211.47, but if one calculates humself, one gets 196,532.03.
This is really serious thing.
Please have a look, ynabers.
The report shows some categories and some accounts are selected. That means that some categories and some accounts are not selected and included in the report. This probably accounts for the discrepancy.
I will sometimes exclude some categories in my own reports. One example of why I might exclude some categories from a report could be (from my own experience) transfers from on-budget savings to off-budget investment accounts. If I'm looking at "spending" reports, I don't need those in the mix because I'm not concerned with those outflows; I know that they are not "spending".
Edited to add: I used to have an account for a family member in my budget, and when I pulled reports I would exclude that account since it wasn't my money.
I only just sent a message with the help bubble chat option but I wanted to say that I experienced this same glitch just now, and in my case all accounts and categories were selected so it's not user error as HappyDance suggested. The negative number is the culprit, in both mine and the OP's case (a refund in my case). YNAB is treating the negative as a positive when summing the totals. I had other refunds that seemed to work fine but those were all in categories where real spending happened and was budgeted for. The negative is a refund for a purchase made in the prior reporting period, so in this period there's actually nothing spent or budgeted, thus the negative.
Hopefully this can be fixed soon because like Avitaliano says it's a big problem as it makes the reports untrustworthy any time there's a refund involved.
