Why wrong capital amount?

In the ProConnect Tax Online, in the Partnership Return, each partner's capital account balance should be the same amount as the end-year capital account balance of the previous year's ending balance, but, while the total capital account of the beginning balance matches to the last year's capital balance, each partner's capital balance as of the beginning balance shown in each partner's K-1 was wrongly calculated by the Program, showing a completely different amount.  The per-partner's capital percentages are correct and yet, it looks as if the program automatically allocate that total amount based on the ENDING percentage of the CURRENT year, so that the beginning capital amount of each partner completely differs from the last year's capital balance for each partner.

The accurate amounts are entered in the basis worksheets, but none of these entries are not reflected in the capital account calculation.  And there is no place where I could enter the accurate capital balance for both beginning and ending balances for each partner to reflect the accurate Beginning Capital amount for each partner.

The critical problem is that the program automatically calculate each partner's BEGINNING capital amount based on the current year's ENDING percentage.

How to fix this critical problem, when there is place to manually enter each partner's beginning capital amount?

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
