Re: My credit card statements run a period of dec.25-Jan 24 , etc (so not a typical month from the first to end of the mth) but when i reconcile QB isnt capturing that
When you reconcile there are two entries to make as you start. Ending balance, and statement date. Both of those are under your control, not QB, even though QB will start with a month end date. Move your cursor to the date field and enter the correct date. Next time you reconcile this account the same date one month later will be the suggested statement end date although it can vary by a day or two. Always enter the correct statement date, even if one statement stops short of year end and the next statement includes activity from two years. Activity date of each transaction is what goes in your books.
