Reconcile Checking Account

When Reconciling my Checking account, it says I am off by $750? but my Cleared transactions, Deposits and Ending Balance All Match the Bank Statement? I have gone back and re-entered the Beginning Balance to match the Banks statement from what Quicken had auto-filled from the previous month and I still get the $750. WHAT is going on can anyone help?

    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 Quicken file with the running balance of the account register from a Quicken file backup saved when the account was last reconciled.  One way to accomplish this is to print the registers to text files.

    My monthly checking account usages and bank statements are small, I am a single user and would see a transaction that was entered in error.

    Does that "Opening Balance" transaction include any outstanding checks/debits at the time that 1st statement was printed?  Does such outstandings sum to $750?
    And, would you see a transaction that was deleted???
