Balance Column in Account Register Missing Totals in Quicken for Mac
In your account register, if you sort by anything other than Date (such as Payee or Category), the transaction register will no longer display the running, daily balance found under the Balance column in Quicken Essentials for Mac. The Balance column is dependent on the payments and deposits in a chronological order.
If you have the sort option set to anything other than date, change the sort order back to by date. You must sort by date in order to display the running, daily balance.
Sorting by Payee, for example, will remove the amounts in the Balance column.
