Why is my projected balance always running in the negative?

About a year ago, the projected balances report suddenly dropped by a few thousand $. It's consistently shows in the negatives now, even though my account is consistently positive. I've fully reconciled the accounts and audited to ensure I didn't have an error in entry. It's looks like the projected balances report isn't recognizing some historical deposits maybe? Anyone have ideas?

    What register balance are you comparing your bank statement Ending Balance to, when reconciling?
    Are there any past due outstanding Scheduled Reminders that you haven't processed, skipped or deleted yet?
    If you say that you might be missing deposits: Have you verified that these deposits are categorized correctly? For example, a transfer from Checking to Savings needs to be categorized in the Checking account as "[Savings]", i.e., the name of the Savings account register enclosed in [square brackets]. This will post a matching linked transfer transaction in the Savings account.
    Lastly, do verify that your account register's Opening Balance transaction amount is still correct. It may have been incorrectly changed if you recently had to deactivate and reactivate your account register.
