Thanks for your question today.
You should set up your QuickBooks so that the two accounts are completely independent of each other. It sounds like you have one account as a SUBaccount of the other.
thanks for helping
yes that's what I did
They are not sub accounts. A sub account will always "total up" to the main account.
You can edit the sub account and remove the Sub account checkbox.
could you tell me the steps to undo them
Open the chart of accounts (CTRL-A)
I don't do this very often - as you can see. Okay
right click on the sub account name. Click edit
Under the account name is XXXXX XXXXX that says Sub account. Take the X out of the box
That makes it a separate account
So now I go back and delete all the transactions except the $25 deposit?
If there are transactions in the savings account, you will need to move them so that they are ONLY in the checking account.
Okay, I think I understand. Thank you so much. I'd be here all afternoon pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. You've been very helpful.
Do move a single transaction, go to the transaction in the register, click CTRL-O to copy the transaction. Then go to the other account and go to a new transaction line and use CTRL-V to paste.
Then you can go back to delete the duplicate transaction.
OK good luck. If you need more help just ask!
