How do I reconcile my account for the first time? When I try, it shows my beginning balance as $0.

    The beginning balance is calculated by Moneydance, the formula used is:

    Initial balance + cleared deposits - cleared withdrawals

    A 0 balance means you have none of these yet. This is typical of a new bank account that has never been reconciled before. So on the surface I am not seeing an issue.
