Credit Card Balances in Parentheses

  1. Default Credit Card Balances in Parentheses

    This might be a dumb question, but what does it mean when my credit card
    balance in the register show up in Red and in parentheses? Then, when I look
    at the Account Listing, the same credit card "Adj. Balance" shows in Black
    and without the parens.

    I'm confused. Can someone please explain this for me. Thanks!

    It means you have a credit balance.

    If you don't actually have a credit balance, and it is a new
    account, it probably means you entered your starting balance as a
    negative number. That needs to be a positive number if you owe.

    The credit card balance is what you owe. You owe a negative amount
    if you have a credit balance.

    The account list works the other way; shows what you have. If you
    owe money, it is negative.
