When I try to reconcile my bank statement I enter the beginning and ending balances, but quicken enters a different beginning amount. This creates a problem where I cannot reconcile my account without entering some false data. Then the next month I encou8nter the same problem even though with the false data balancing the account it repeats the problem

    If the beginning balance of the reconcile is changing from what they were, it is because the Reconciled transactions have changed.

    The opening balance of the reconcile is the sum total of all of the R transactions in the register and is calculated at the time of reconciliation and not stored for future reference.

    What could change that # is one of the following:
    1. a blank or C was changed to a R
    2. an R was changed to a blank or C
    3. the amount of an R was changed
    4. a new transaction was marked R to begin with
    5. a R transaction was deleted
