getting out from under behind

i am ridiculously behind in reconciling my accounts. Like almost a year. Trying to catch up a month at a time is not appealing.

I have prided myself on tracking every penny and keeping my accounts balanced. In the past the errors I have encountered have been my own. I don't think I have ever encountered and error on the part of my bank or lenders.

I would appreciate thoughts for likely a quick-and-dirty way of doing it quickly and alll at once. i imagine marking all transactions as cleared. writing off whatever amount is not accounted for. And adjusting the balance to the correct balance.

Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Just to make sure I understand your question, you want to mark all of your older transactions as cleared, and then enter in a transaction to balance in your accounts if needed? If so, yes, this is possible, in exactly the way you described. I'm not quite sure what you are asking beyond that, so please let me know if you are having trouble with doing that, and with what part specifically.

    Thanks Ethan.

    regarding "entering a transaction to balance (my) accounts," i'm wonder about the "adjust account balance" command. is that what it does, what it's for?

    This feature places an amount in a field in the account information screen which is then used to calculate the balance of the account. It is added from day one of the account being created.

    should I take this can be used to make adjustments to the current balance?

    As it is used in all calculations, it works like an initial balance hence why I said it is included from day 1 of the account it will also change the current balance. It is not an adjustment that will be shown as a specific point in time, if you want that you need to take a different approach,

    I just created a category called 'Reconciliation adjustment' and entered an amount on my chosen date.
