Hi there, 

 

It's important you're able to match your transactions and I'll be happy to point you towards the right direction. 

 

As you know, matching means QuickBooks matched the downloaded transaction with one you already entered. This links the two so there aren't any duplicates. All you have to do is make sure the match is correct.

  1.     Select the transaction to expand the view. 
  2.     Review the “Records found.” These transactions are ones you already entered in QuickBooks.
  3.     Select the link next to each record to get more details.
  4.     Review the “Deposit to” field on the forms. Your transaction in QuickBooks is already in the account listed.
  5.     When you’re done, select Match.

Hi

 

I just hanged up with the support person. The issue was not fixed. He suggested me to un-reconcile and try again, something that will make me spend money with my ad-hoc accountant.

 

I think there is an bug in QBO related to the way multi-currency TRANSFERS are done in QBO. It finds only one matching record when a transfer between accounts involves to accounts, QBO just fins the one where the money was sent from. My bank will output and send two transactions to QBO, one in the sender account and one in the receiver account.

Hi there. In case you need to unreconcile, I can show you how to do that in QBO. 

 

If you'd like to edit a reconciled transaction, you'd have to unreconcile it first so you can edit it. Here's how to unreconcile in QuickBooks:

 

   1. Select the Gear icon on the Toolbar.
   2. Under Your Company, select Chart of Accounts.
   3. Locate the appropriate account for the transaction.
   4. From the Action column, select Account History.
   5. Identify the transaction to edit.
   6. In the reconcile status column (indicated by a check mark), repeatedly select the top line of the transaction to change the status of the transaction.

        Codes indicate the status of the transaction:
             - Cleared
             - Reconciled
             Blank - Not cleared or reconciled

   7. Select Save.
 

For additional tips on how to avoid undoing a reconciliation, take a look at this article: Avoid undoing a reconciliation. To see a more in-depth explanation of how to manually undo a reconciliation without an accountant, check out this article: How to unreconcile a transaction or undo a reconciliation

 

If one our agents recommended you to unreconcile, I recommend following the steps so we can get to the bottom of this ASAP.  Let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you, by doing those steps I was able to see those transactions. I had to make the R, C then I was able to see it as my Foreign Transactions and 'force' a match. I really hope I have no issues further down the road.

 

I still believe there is a bug in QBO in multi currency Transfers where QBO will match only one of those transactions. E.g. I moved 100 USD to my CAD in my Bank web page, I made a TRANSFER in QBO from my USD to my CAD account, same amount of 100 USD.

 

Two days later my bank sends two transactions to QBO, one for those 1000 USD and a second one with 1290 CAD (1USD = 1.290CAD in this example).

 

QBO will find a matching record on the USD transaction downloaded from my bank.

 

The CAD transaction will remain open with no 'match'. I will have to 'force' it to match my foreign transaction in USD.

 

Would be good if both transactions downloaded from my bank were matched to the same TRANSFER from QBO.
