You'll want to review the opening balance. It needs to match the balance of your real-life bank account for whatever day you choose to start tracking the account in QuickBooks.
If the account's opening balance doesn't match its bank statement, please refer to this article: Fix an opening balance to match a bank statement. It lists a number of possible scenarios for this specific issue, then provides you steps on how you can resolve each of them.
My reconciliation for May 2019 shows 76 payments for $32,050.18 when in fact I've only selected 71 payments for $31,292.23. Why is this number incorrect?
I’ve had already done the things you suggested below before I asked for help.
The transactions do no add up in Quickbooks, unless there are transactions I can’t see. I’ve taken the transaction from QB and lined them up against the transaction in my bank statement and they both add up to $31,292.23. However, QB has $32,050.18 for 76 transactions with I’ve only selected 71.
Please take a look at my reconciliation and see this for yourself.
