Deleting or changing Opening Balance AdjustmentSimple question:
Anything wrong with modifying or deleting it?
More info if it matters:
This is regarding a new credit card account that was created by first manually downloading transactions in a date range, then the acct settings were changed to use Quicken Connect for direct downloads to fill in the rest (from today back to 90 days). So I want to manually edit the "opening balance adjustment" dollar value -- or delete the transaction line item altogether -- in order to correct today's balance because the acct starts off showing a minus dollar value. I figure that I can truncate the history at some end/start of statement cycle where I had paid off the balance. Make sense?
But I vaguely recall reading somewhere that there's a hazard in change the "opening balance adjustment" transaction, that I should never touch it? Can't find the discussion again. I don't understand how this "opening balanced adjustment" was created, by who, why or when. Whatever.
So before I mess anything up, is there anything wrong with manually modifying it?
