Transfers didn't import as cleared

Hello.

I just migrated from Quicken 2007. In my Checking account, which goes back to 2005, all the transfers to and from my Cash account imported as uncleared transactions. Same thing for at least some of the transfers from my Receivables account and a few transactions to a 529 account. Every other cleared transaction imported properly.

So I have hundreds of uncleared transactions. When I go to reconcile, they are all there.

What can I do to fix this without messing up balances? Thanks.

    Hello,

    It sounds like you just need to mark these transactions as cleared? If so, you can select them in your register, right-click the selection, and choose to mark the transactions as cleared. It may make sense to click on the top of the reconciliation column in your register (the capital C) to sort your register by the transactions' cleared status. This should group the transactions you want to select in order so you can select them all at once as a group. You can then click on the Date heading when you are done to resort your register by date.

    Let me know if I'm not understanding what you are describing.

    Thanks, Ethan.

     

    If I manually clear each transaction, that won’t cause any reconciliation problems? If that is the case, I’ll do that. I just didn’t want to throw anything out of whack.

     

    Thanks—

    Doing this will not throw any balances out.

    The effect of it will be for any of these transactions not to show up as un-reconciled in the future, in other words they will be included into the opening balance as far as the reconciliation process is concerned.

    Yes, clearing or unclearing transactions will not affect account balances. The reconciliation process is a way to evaluate accounts to see if anything is out of sorts, but it doesn't actually change the accounts. If any discrepancies are found, you would have to change those manually.

    As dwg mentioned above, it will affect your Beginning Balance in the reconciliation process, which is a calculated value:

    Beginning Balance = Initial Balance of the Account + Cleared Deposits - Cleared Payments

    So adding or removing cleared transactions will affect that part of the reconciliation process. But I think that's what you want in this situation, if those transactions should be cleared but are not.
