I have not been using the RECONCILE feature within Quicken. I would like to start using that feature and am wondering what I need to do to start. When I click on RECONCILE, tons of transactions show up with no reconciliation marked. Is there any material I can read or view on this topic to help me become more comfortable with this potential operation I am about to do?
