Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/Barter



After posting all entries into the barter account, the balance appears to be (15,902.04)

How do i make adjustment into the realized gain/loss account since this is a negative value?

What is the entries needed and transaction details.

The barter account should be zero.
I'm unclear why you are making journal entries to
the barter account that are not the exact same amount.

If you have to pay more or less because of an exchange rate
issue, it would be best if you could make a Journal entry to A/R or A/P  with the offset to
the realized gain or loss.  Leaving the balance in the account for your
second barter entry journal entry

If the reason that it has 15902.04
is due to exchange rate differential, then you would
debit the barter account and
credit the realized gain and loss account.
