Sudden, weird transaction difference in two accounts - why?

I've been using Quicken since 2001. The weirdest thing happened in the last month. When reconciling one of my checking accounts, it wouldn;t balance. It said I was off by $777.22 which wasn't. So after trying to figure out problem, let put a balance adjustment make things work. Mind y0u, correct previous month and then wrong this even though there were less than dozen transactions. Now just reconciled AMEX bill for and, yep, also exact same amount $777.22. This does not correspond any single transaction or payment. makes no sense. Any ideas?.

    Sounds like there may have been a transfer between the accounts.

    If the reconciled opening balance has changed, a reconciled transaction has been added, modified, or deleted.  To determine the source of the change, I suggest you compare the running balance of the account register in the current datafile with the running balance of the account register from a datafile backup saved when the account was last reconciled.  One way to accomplish this is to print the registers to text files.
