Investment balances show contributions as negative cash balance
I'm using Money 2006. When I downloaded transaction for the first time,
Money added up all my cash contributions as a negative cash balance. This
completely skews my portfolio view - in fact, it shows a negative cash
balance worth more than all my investments...
How can I solve this? I just started using Money and I don't have that much
work put into it so far. I'd be willing to delete & re-upload accounts if I
did something wrong initially.
Most of those contributions are direct deposit from paycheck to 401(k) and
never went through my bank account. A smaller...problem with cash balance of investment account.

First off, thanks for all of the help on the Ameritrade money market issue.
Cal, if you can help me with this one i'll be immensely grateful - it's the
most vexing Money problem i've come across and frankly it undermines my
ability to make much use of Money currently.
Here's my problem: I download transactions for several RBC Dain Rauscher

After working hard to get my Money 2004 to synchronize with MSN Money

My investment accounts which can be displayed by the MSN Portfolio Manager
do not display the correct cash balance for my investment accounts. After
the initial synchronization between Money 2004 and MSN Money, when I go to
MSN Money/My Money and display the Portfolio Manager, my accounts were
correct except for the cash balances were not transferred. (This obviously
resulted in the account balances being incorrect.) I went into the

...Checkbook balance and cash balance do not match
Does anyone know how to correct a checkbook account if the balance does not
match the cash account it is attached to? I believe this may have occurred
when we created the checkbook id after using the cash account.
If you cash GL account has the correct amount and you need to change the
checkbook to match it, here are 2 options:
1. If you have not reconciled the checkbook yet (ever), you can fill in the
last reconciled balance on the checkbook maintenance screen. This option is
only available before you run the first reconciliation for a checkbook.
2. Enter a bank transaction of ...PortfolioCash Balance Error
The balance on the cash line on the portfolio page is different than the

the portfolio page balance but is listed only once in the cash detail page

no avail. Even when I delete the transaction on the detail page, it remains
as part of the balance on the portfolio page.
...Investments show incorrect cash balances after conversion to 2005
I installed Money 2005 Deluxe about a month ago without any problems...or so
I thought. While balancing my investments, I noticed that all investment
account's cash balances show a substantial negative balance. It appears that
during the conversion process, Money 2005 changed stock sells from depositing
the associated cash to having made a cash payment instead. Over time this
has created a greatly negative balance since both buys and sells are
subtracting from the bottom line in the cash ending balance. Does anybody
have any ideas on how to correct this?

amount is $1,860.17. I've been searching for the problem for several hours
and am about to screem. Can someone please help?

My MS Money 2003 is showing changes in cash balances from time to time even

Money 2004: I have a Merrill Lynch account that is an investment account

I am having a terrible problem with balancing the cash

I have searched this newsgroup and have already tried the

In one of my investment accounts, the cash balance shown in "investment

difference is int the amount of a certain dividend that was paid prior to 2nd
quarter this year. The dividend entries appear to be ok. The amount shown
under cash transactions is correct. The amount under investment transactions
is in error and this is the value that shows up in the portfolio and the

Somehow I must have changed some setting in Money that is causing this
problem. It started with Money 2004. I hoped it would go away when I
updated to Money 2005, but it didn't. The problem is that in a brokerage
account when I sell a stock the "Cash balance" value doesn't get updated.
"Cash balance" doesn't get updated when I add cash to the account either.
Can anyone point me to the setting I might have changed to cause this?
