Asset not included in balance sheet
I purchased a stock in a linked cash/investment account. The purchase was entered into the Investment account and the amount of the stock was subtracted from the cash account in the register and on the balance sheet, showing the correct amount in both. However, the amount of the investment did not increase the balance in the Investment account on the Balance Sheet, leaving the Balance out by the amount of the purchase. This is the second time this has happened in the last two months. Other purchases have registered correctly.
The first time it happened I was still using Q2013 and suspected it was just getting old so I upgraded to 2017. I have made several purchases that registered correctly since then.
The first time it happened, I eventually got it to correct by repeatedly deleting the transaction in the Investment account and re-entering it, making slight changes in the name and symbol each time to see it that was the problem. It finally worked that time, but the same attempt now meets with continued failure.
I do not use any online updating, but enter all transactions manually, so the problem is local.
I have run Validate and Control Z to no avail. I am using Windows 10
Anyone have any ideas?
