I went to reconcile my bank account this morning and the starting balance was wrong so I undid the last reconciliation, and each time I did the numbers are incorrect?

I went to reconcile my bank account this morning and the starting balance was wrong so I undid the last reconciliation, and the balance before that was wrong, and before that... Every reconciliation was wrong. I had done them all myself and everything had been done correctly, Why the sudden change? Whats going on?

I tried to restore a back up and work from there so that all of the reconciliations are not undone, but I am having some problems doing that as well. 

What should I do?? Should I restore and work from there? How do I fix the reconcile issues if I work from a backup?

Having trouble restoring a back up, it comes up with an error that the file is being used somewhere else so the file has not been restored.

How did you resolve this? I have just had this same thing happen. I have been balancing to the penny since I took over this account --about 9 months ago. This month my begininning balnce is off. I wnt back alll the way to 2015 when the account was opened and only the first few months match the statement balance. Even past reconciliations are wrong and you know those were right at the time. This is so wierd!

The first thing to do is ignore the beginning balance; use the statement and ending balance and try to reconcile. You might see some older transactions are no longer marked as Cleared = these are why the beginning balance is changed. Just keep working, and mark them, as well. This is called Mini-Rec or Re-Reconcile.

For instance, if you use the Accountants' copy and Import a Changes file, a reconciliation might be rolled back. Or, someone changed one check to a Bill Payment Check.

Beginning Balance = the Net of all previously Cleared transactions. If that Status got changed, the Beginning Balance Changed. That doesn't mean there is an Error. This is a Condition for the Status of Cleared or not.
