I cannot get QB to show the current balance of an investment account. I enter the G/L as a journal entry. But my PL statement always shows an old balance. suggestions?
The balance of your investment account will show on your Balance Sheet, not on the P&L statement.
If you are looking at your Balance Sheet and the amount is wrong, I would check the date of the transaction as compared to the date of your Balance Sheet. If you did a transaction on December 15 and the Balance Sheet date is December 13, the transaction will not be reflected on the Balance Sheet. So double check your dates.
