Why does Quicken add to a previously cleared balance in the Reconcile window?

I have Windows. I click Ctrl R and begin the reconciliation. In the window, the prior balance given matches the beginning balance on my bank statement. The only change in the past month is the addition of $.13 interest.
In the Reconcile window, the cleared balance is correct: $260.67. The ending balance is correct: $260.80. The difference is -0.13, which is the interest amount displayed in the Deposits column. I select the interest payment to clear it.

Suddenly the cleared balance changes to 273.67, and I am off by $12.87.
PLEASE help me!!!

    Hi @Mary G,

    Very strange.  Are you sure that the 13 cents of interest wasn't somehow entered as 13 dollars instead?  That would explain the problem.

    Hi again @Mary G,

    The "Duh" was clearly not necessary.  You'd be surprised to know how many folks do the same, or a similar, thing!

    Just happy to know that I helped you...

    Take care.
