Items in my budget aren't matching transactions

I am having a problem this month I have never experienced before. A line item in my budget doesn't match the underlying transactions in my account register. I'm worried this has happened before and I didn't notice it. The only reason I know for sure it is wrong because it has my income as the wrong number for the month. When I click on the link in my budget page it shows by 2 paychecks for the month but the Salary number is wrong for one of them. Off by a few hundred dollars. But when I go back to my checking account register and open the split on that transaction the Salary line is correct. So how can it be 2 different numbers for the same transaction?

    Within the Paycheck transaction split somehow what was supposed to be a payroll deduction expense got categorized to Salary. So the net deposit amount was correct and matched the downloaded transaction value. But the budget looked wrong because the deduction was netting out of Salary instead of being allocated to the correct Expense category.

    Turns out I had screwed something up and I found the error. Not sure if or how I can delete my question but I would. Thanks for trying to help!
