Hi Slitaize, 

 

Sounds like you have made some changes after doing a bank rec. When you edit any transaction that has been marked as reconciled before, their reconciled status will drop hence impacting your opening balance for the next reconciliation. To fix this, the easier way is to just manually reconcile those transactions you have made changes on. To do that, please take a look at this article for step-by-step:

Please let us know if you require additional assistance on this. Thank you!

Thankyou! I changed the status of the re-entered (backdated) transaction to "Reconciled" and that got rid of it out of my current Rec & corrected the starting balance.

I have the exact same problem. How did you change the status of the re-entered transactions to “reconciled”?  I tried that and just got a bigger discrepancy report with all of those transactions now showing change type: reconciled in register.  HELP. 😊

I am using Quickbooks online on an iPad and I do not see the question mark. I filled out a form I found elsewhere to get a call back, but I have not received a call.  Is there a 1-800# I can call directly to speak to someone on the Customer Service Team?

Thanks for replying, Steven. It looks like there is a number missing in the phone number above.  Could you please provide that again?

That is the correct number 1800 046 038, if you need to include a zero before calling out that may be potentially the issue. But otherwise that number is active now and our agents are available to help.

That is not a correct phone number.  Adding a zero in front does not work.  I am calling from in the United States. There are no phone numbers like that.  Can you please provide a working phone number or refer me to someone else who can help?

Hi Rose701, 

 

Apologies, the phone number should work if you add the +61 area code to the beginning of the phone number. 

 

If  you have any further issues with making a call please try our chat function using this link

 

Thanks,
