I inadvertently deleted some reconciled transactions, and now I'm getting the message saying I can't reconcile until I fix those transactions. I've followed the directions I've been able to find online, but so far nothing has worked. Recreating the transactions and manually marking them as reconciled just adds more lines that it says need to be fixed.
Let's fix the error you have with your reconciliation, @mikeyontsfilm.
You can fix those deleted reconciled transactions by manually adding them back and making sure to add an R in the checkmark column.
I also suggest running a past reconciliation report, then review your bank statements. For transactions that were on the previous bank statement but weren't on the reconciliation for those dates, you can add it manually.
Here's how to run the report:
Go to Reports menu and enter Reconciliation Reports in the Find report by name search bar.
Select Reconciliation Reports.
Select the Account for the reconciliation report you want to view.
From the Report period drop-down arrow, choose the reconcile period.
Select View Report.
After manually adding those transaction, you can now mark them as reconciled:
Go to the Accounting menu and proceed to Chart of Accounts.
Find the account you’re reconciling and select View register.
Click the transaction to expand the view.
Select the box in the checkmark column until you see the letter R.
Click Save once you're done.

I've followed these directions and it still doesn't seem to be working. For example, there's a $120 deposit in checking, in March of this year. I enter the transaction, click until there's an R, and go back to the reconciliation report to see the deposit still listed as deleted.
When I look in the register, the deposit is there, and it matches my bank statement.
