Chapter 6. Balance Your Accounts > Correct Differences

Correct Differences

In the Reconcile dialog, if the Difference amount is not zero, it means that your account is not balancing for the current statement period. This usually occurs for one of two reasons: either a wrong number of payment or deposit items have been checked or some of the checked items have incorrect dollar amounts.

First you have to find the mistake. Begin by counting the number of credit items on your bank statement, and then count the number of deposits shown in the Reconcile dialog. If the number doesn’t match, you’ve found the problem. Either add the deposit you forgot to enter into Quicken using the New (New Transaction) button, or uncheck a deposit that you marked in error.
