Reconciling previous months

I am very new to all this and have been teaching myself how to use this program as I go. I am currently looking into doing reconciliation reports however am not sure what I am doing wrong. I need to do reports from all the way back in July 2020 and am not sure how to go about it. I started with just July 2020 and matched all the quickbooks deposits and payments with my bank statements, however, it is still saying there is a large difference that needs to be matched. If anyone could tell me what I am doing wrong that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi HaizelsBeauty74, 

Thank you for your question and welcome to our community!


I would suggest checking the opening balance in your QuickBooks and make sure it aligns with your Bank Statement. Here are some useful links on the topic:
