I am a little baffled at the moment. I know I'm missing something, but I have not been able to put my finger on it. Here is the scoop:
I have used PayPal for several years for some of my transactions online. Tonight, I used PayPal's "Download My History" feature and downloaded an "All Activity Comma Delimited" file. I then loaded this into Microsoft Excel.
In excel, I added up the "Net" column using the ADDSUM feature. This column includes transaction fees, and has every transaction ever made from my account. In theory, the sum of the "Net" column should be the same as my current PayPal balance, because the data in the column dates back to when I setup my account.
However, the number is not the same. In fact, its $136 above what my current balance is. So either the CSV file I downloaded is incorrect (Phone support swore to me thats impossible) or I lost $136 in cyberspace.
Try it for yourself on your own PayPal account. Do you have the same problem I did? Or have you discovered where my error is?
