Quicken Reconcile - changing Ending Balance values

In the new version (as with my previous version) I put the beginning balance in the right place to balance, added the ending balance, with the interest below. When I opened to reconcile the checks and deposits, the beginning balance I set up had changed to a lower amount, and this happened without my changing anything in the amounts. What is going on!?

    If you're talking about Reconciling an account ... you shouldn't need to (and shouldn't) adjust the  "Prior Balance" at all.
    The figure that Q presents represents the sum of all Reconciled transactions in the account.
    SO, why are you changing it?

    Is this account handled manually - or do you online download transactions into Quicken ?
    If manual - are you then performing the Reconcile manually .... from the bank Statement ?
    In this example, the online balance at the bottom is from the bank -
    which also is reflected as the paper statement prior balance
