    Sorry, but none of this answers question as to why I have account balance
    showing, even though the account has been deleted. I am much in need of
    your assistance, to correct same.

    Thank you.

    Stevan, sometimes it's difficult to understand what the poster is asking when they post on this public forum. I'm just another MD customer, like you. When you asked how to record a Credit Card transaction, I don't know any of the following:

    1. Do you already have accounts set up
    2. Do you know how to enter transactions into registers
    3. Your experience with Moneydance, etc.

    Now you mentioned that an account has been deleted and there is an account balance.

    Now I don't know which account was deleted and which account has a balance

    The more information that you can provide, the better able IK Support, or fellow users will be able to assist you.

    I realize that you are just seeking support, but I wanted to offer that information as an overview of the process

    Thanks for your email. Didn't realize you were another customer. I set up 2
    credit card new accounts, as a long time Moneydance customer, I deleted one
    account that, began with large balance, from left-hand column. The balance
    remains, effecting my net worth, in the contiguous column. Hope I provided
    the right info.

    Deleting an account from the side bar just deletes it from the sidebar, nothing more. The account still exists.

    The only way to eliminates an account from the net worth calculation when it has a balance is to mark the account as inactive.

    Take the Menu path Tools --> Accounts

    Select the account you wish to modify and select the edit button, in the resultant screen check on inactive.

    account in question.

    If you want to move your data t a new computer i.e., replacing the existing one then instructions are in:

    If you want Moneydance on both machines and want to share the data then look to:

    You should note that you should not open an old closed unrelated issue to post a new question you should start a new topic.
