Problems with reconcile

I have just switched over from Quicken to Moneydance and am attempting my first account reconcile. The problem is that the "start" balance doesn't correspond to the correct numbers and I don't know how to manage/edit it. Suggestions?

    just a user,

    Highlight select account, click Account, Edit Account. Set Start Date and Initial Balance. Click OK. Now your transactions will start subtracting or adding to that amount and date. So be sure to pick an amount and date where you have no transactions that have not cleared by that date. If you have any older outstanding transactions, be sure to adjust your initial amount to allow for them to post.

    You can’t. The start balance is calculated from all prior reconciled txns. So do you have prior reconciled items? Unless you have set an opening balance on the account?
