how do you delete a previous reconciliation?

  • Thank you for your help.  My problem is that some transactions were lost between reconciliations.  I went to balance this month and the ending/beginning balance has changed (I printed a copy).  So I was hoping to "undue" last months reconciliation (like you can with QUICKBOOKS) and find my error.  Looks like I can't do this.
  • Quicken does not save reconciles.

    In Quicken, you "undo" a reconciliation by modifying the Cleared Status ("Clr" column) from "R" to "c" for the transactions that were in the reconcile you want to "undo".

    For non-investment accounts:
    You can use Find/Replace.
    Or you can select multiple register transactions as you would select multiple files in Windows Explorer, then right-click a selected transaction, hold the cursor on "Reconcile" and click "Cleared".
  • Thank you for your help.  I was hoping for a more automated direction than a manual one.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
