What do the Springclean errors mean?
Reconciliation data errors
If you see reconciliation data errors in the springclean, go to Reports - Reconciliation.
1. Account x, page xx: not balanced
This warning indicates that there is a discrepancy on page 28. In the Reconciliation report, the page is unbalanced by $3,700.00.
Solution: Re-reconcile the page to your bank statement. There may be a transaction missing from Cashmanager or it has been transposed i.e. income instead of expense or vice versa.
2. Account x, page xx; Opening balance ($xx) does not match prior closing balance ($xx)
Believe it or not, these errors relate to one page; its statement closing date has caused the pages around it to move out of order.
Notice how page 31 precedes page 32 (in both page number and opening and closing balances) but has a statement closing date after page 32?
Solution: Re-reconcile page 31 and make sure the correct statement closing date has been entered.
All other pages will then move back into the correct order.
