I had to delete and re-enter a credit card charge that had already been cleared. How do I clear the newly entered charge (apart from reconciling just that payment)?

Using Quickbooks 2016 for Mac


Why did you Have To delete it? You can correct things, you know. That would not Unreconcile, unless the amount had been wrong. And if the amount was wrong, it would not have reconciled in the first place without have an out of balance condition.

For any account you reconcile, when you affect the status of what was reconciled, because a wrong update, reconciled the wrong duplicate entry, or deleted one to recreate it as something different, as long as the Amount still is right, you can do a Mini-Rec or Re-reconciliation any time.

Either wait for the next cycle, and use that statement, or use the most recent. Ignore the Beginning balance; you affected it, by changing Reconciled transactions. Your goal is always the ending balance for a given date. The Beginning Balance is a reference point that you affected, so Ignore it.

Reconciling = always clearing only those transactions that you know the bank processed. So, if you are Re-reconciling, you use that recent ending balance and clear only your Recreated transactions. You should still get to a difference of 0. If waiting until the next cycle, clear these old ones that you recreated, along with new entries; you should still get to a difference of 0.

If you cannot get to a difference or 0, and you know the recreated transaction(s) are right, then they are not the problem, either.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
