Receiving negative balance after closing account


I closed a Fidelity JTWROS account and transferred the funds to an individual one for my son. I ran the One-Step update at the end of May (the closure happened in mid-May). Quicken did the removal of the securities and the transfers to the new account (which is not part of my Quicken accounts) yet the old account is now showing a negative balance instead of $0. How do I zero it out?

    1st thing to do is to open the account and see what's causing the incorrect amount.

    How you correct it depends upon what caused the problem.

    Thank you. I went through 5 years worth of transactions from Fidelity & discovered I had marked the wrong accounts transferred from (in 2022). That was the discrepancy. I downloaded CSV files by year to make scrolling through & comparing with my Q registry a little easier.
