If a credit card transaction is accidentally cleared with a check mark from the account register and then uncleared, how do I correct the statement balance being off?
While attempting to reconcile a credit card statement, I realized that a $69.99 transaction had been erroneously "cleared" with an accidental check mark in the register so my reconciliation was off by 69.99. I "uncleared" the "cleared" transaction causing it to show up on the reconciliation page but when checked the reconciliation was still off by 69.99, if I "unchecked" the 69.99, then the balance was off by $139.98. I deleted the transaction and reentered it but that didn't change anything. Then I undid my previous reconciliation but unfortunately, now my opening balance is off by "69.99". Any help is gratefully appreciated. Please help.
