Credit Card Reconciliation with huge positive Account Balance after?

I just did my first reconciliation on my credit card account, which I use for most of my transactions, and then pay off frequently.  The account now shows an enormous positive balance for my credit card.  It should show a slightly negative balance to reflect the charges I have made since I last paid it off and reconciled.  What did I do wrong?

Hi Amanda, 

Thanks for posting! Did you add, edit or delete any transactions while reconciling? That would be the only way your Account balance would have changed. 

At this point, if your balance is wrong, double check that the transactions you've added since the date of the reconcile are correct. You can correct any mistakes if you find them, and that should hopefully correct your balance too. 

Hope that helps!
