Unable to reconcile on the Mac

I have the same exact problem; most of my accounts will not auto-balance. I have deleted all reconciliation adjustments and it only makes matters worse. I used Quicken for Windows for 30 years with nary a problem - partly as a Windows alone based product and then after purchasing my first Mac in 2006 and using a partitioned drive so I could continue to use the Windows product. The Mac reviews had been so bad I didn't even attempt to use the Mac product. Then when my old computer was no longer capable of updating the OS I was forced to use the Mac product. If my old Mac had been capable of updating the OS I would have continued to use a partitioned hard drive and I would gladly have paid the subscription fee for the Windows version of Quicken. I have repeatedly tried to use Quicken for Mac with nothing but problems with reconciliations (auto) over the last 5 -10 years. During those years I also tried many other software company's products but never achieved a comfort level I had with Quicken (Windows). Remedies taken: I stopped using Quicken for Mac and used Mint; I started over with Quicken for Mac with a new install and then at some point, Quicken for Mac became a subscription so I "rebelled" and decided I would never use Quicken again because the product was so flawed. I then reinstalled Quicken for Mac and started over again, deleting or archiving all data files and agreeing to the "new" subscription based service. Now after dealing with this for 10-15 years, I am finally at the point of considering partitioning my hard drive on my newest computer (5 years old) & going back to Quicken for Windows. Most likely I will lose my recent subscription renewal fee (yet another way for a money-making scam from the software developer/distributor and I will have to pay for a subscription for Quicken for Windows (even though I recently pd my recurring subscription for Mac.) All reviews I read about Quicken for Mac over the years have been negative yet I continued to try to make Quicken for Mac work. For the last 6 mo I have run Mint & Quicken simultaneously with Mint being dead-on accurate and Quicken showing a neg balance in my checking acct of well over $60,000 (other accounts have the same types of negative balances.) The only reason I do not stick with Mint is due to the reports issues (or lack thereof) and various other functions I used to have access to in the Windows version of Quicken. HELP!!! I do not think there is any cure for this.-1
GeoffG SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭I can't say what the Mac reconciliation issues may be, but if you converted the file from Windows, that could have contributed to your problems, as the conversion tools was not ideal.If I understand you correctly, you have a current subscription. If that is the case, some good news. You have access to either the Mac version OR the Windows version with your subscription (available form quicken.com/download. I would probably consider starting with a fresh data file and start from there while using the old data files for archive/reporting.0
