This problem can probably be solved.
The reason you have not received an answer to your post is probably because
nobody has seen this specific issue. You did not provide enough facts to
fully understand the problem and, as a practical matter, it would be too
time consuming for others to reproduce the problem even if you did describe
it fully. Money's reports can be complex and it is not always obvious where
the numbers come from.
I have been using money for many years (I use version 2002 because I don't
like any of the newer versions) and I can assure you that it is accurate and
reliable. There is a reason for the discrepancy that you are seeing and it
can be found if you look hard enough. If the issue is a bug it can be
reproduced and then you can deal with it. MSFT may even fix it if you
The best I can tell you is to very carefully investigate the reports and
figure out where Money is getting the problem numbers from. I have seen
problems similar to yours and all of them were caused by mistakes in the
original transactions and usually my fault. Once you fully understand how
Money computes numbers in reports it will be far easier for you to get Money
to do exactly what you want so fixing this problem will help you in many
other ways over the years.
If you have more questions that are more specific, ask away.
