On November 16, 2009 you received the following bank statement:



Debit/Credit Amount

Current Balance

November 1, 2009




November 1, 2009




After you record the bank statement in the Process External Bank Statement window, you decide to manually reconcile those transactions for your bank account. In the External Reconciliation window you select the deposit transaction in your books and the deposit transaction recorded in your bank. You move those transactions to the lower section of the window and reconcile them.

The transaction referring to the fee remains unreconciled, because it is not documented in your books. Therefore, you select it. When you choose the Reconcile button, you create a manual journal entry to balance this transaction.
