How do I enter all of my account information from the time I opened my accounts until now without messing up my register?
Special Request Question: I am crazy about tracking my finances and want to capture all of my financial information including everything from paychecks, transfers, bills etc. I want to capture every transaction from when the account was first opened until now. Obviously this adds up to a lot of transactions and I am falling behind entering transactions because I am always making more transactions every day. I want to connect with my bank to download transactions for the past 45 days (which is the limit my bank allows) and continue to do this so I will not have to go back and continue to catch up on transactions. When I add these accounts to Quicken it makes the opening balance the farthest back transaction from the 45 days. My opening balance for all of my accounts when originally opened was $50. How would I go about starting from the beginning without messing up my register or running balance? I may be confusing myself but it just seems overwhelming because it’s so much I am trying to accomplish but the longer I put it off without recording my day to day transactions I will be even farther behind! Help Please!
