One transaction is throwing my entire account system off.

It is a $31 transaction that transfer that amount from primary to make a payment. When the reconcile window pops up and it has it clearing, I am -$31 when I delete the transaction I am clear and it is across my entire system.

    Are you making that payment to another account, say a credit card or a loan. OR is it going to a vendor of some sort?
    Also, what does "I am clear and it is across my entire system" mean???
