Account overview balance not matching the actual account balance over time

Mintlubber Member ✭✭
The account overview balance is not matching the actual account balance over time. It had very large negative numbers showing up as the end of period balance. I created a new account and started moving records over to the new account. The new account's "Account overview balance" WAS correct and matched the actual account balance at the start. I moved a few months of records at a time, but after about a hundred record or 15 months of data, the account overview balance went negative again. I move a few months of data back to the old account, but it did not clean up the issue. There seems to be corruption and the validate does not clean it up.
