Clicking "Done" when reconciling when you have a non-zero difference

What happens if I click "Done" before the value in Differences is zero? What happens to the amount there after that?

    I'm a fellow user.

    Once you click on 'Done' the transactions that have been marked as reconciling are changed to reconciled, nothing more.

    The Differences Value is a calculated value that changes as you mark and un-mark transactions as reconciling. Nothing happens with this value if you exit when the value is non-zero it is being shown for your benefit only.

    No harm, just a bit of pain in the neck!

    Your starting balance for the next reconciliation will not match the
    bank's (I am assuming checking but consistent across all accounts) by
    that amount. This will be the same as if you forgot to reconcile for the
    month.

    Sometimes that happens to me because I print the screen (to file with
    the bank statement), and the system sometimes interprets the keys to
    unclick the transaction. If I click "done", I will go in again with the
    adjusted starting balance and enter the real ending balance, "clear" the
    transaction, and all is well in the world.

    enjoy.
