Problem reconciling a new checking account
I recently opened a new account. All entries were entered manually. When I reconciled my first statement I entered the starting balance, the closing balance and the closing date on the statement. When I was finished all the entries displayed were checked as cleared but it showed I had a large negative balance. I assume this was because mailed checks had cleared after the statement ending date. I clicked Done and choose the option to continue later, assuming there was no way to clear any transaction after that date. When the next statement came I wasn't able to continue. The only option available was to make an "adjustment" to the balance by just adding. in the difference. I'm apparently unable to finish without removing this. How do I proceed?
