Balance Sheet is out of balance when not including inactive accounts

Our balance sheet is out of balance when we don't include inactive accounts
When the account changing is a net asset account, this is due to net activity of income statement accounts that need to be included and not actual balances of balance sheet accounts.

This is the reason to always include inactive accounts, not so much for the ending balance, but for the activity.

To confirm which accounts the difference is related to, run an income statement report for the full fiscal years used in the balance sheet and include inactive accounts in order to see which inactive accounts had activity during the time frame.
