I can't find the error. Can I just add a correction to my Mac account so it matches my brokerage one?

    I think It was a transfer in kind from this account in 2012 which also I seem to have recorded as a cash deduction. I just redeposited the cash from my slush fund cash account (which I don't track) and all is well!

    This is no trivial amount and need more explanation regarding going back to 2013. Has this always been off by the same amount going back six years or just a recent development? If recent, did you delete an account or transaction that may have been a transfer to this account? If it's always been off, can you go back to an earlier (2013/2012) statement to try and determine the cause? As a last resort you can make an adjustment, but IMHO that is not the right way to find an error.

    Was converting accounts from Q2007Mac to the new subscription QMac version. the Q2007 account coincides exactly with the Broker's statement every year. The new Q file is short $1809 in the cash portion every year. Right now, I just want to retain Q2007 for history, and move ahead with QMac. Can I just insert an error correction entry of !809. in the QMac 2013 account, or would that cause a pile-up elsewhere?

    I've actually been using Q2007 since 1999, but it was a long slow learning curve with many mistakes.
