When pending transactions clear, do they clear to the date the payment was made or to the date when the transaction clears? Is there a way for it be the date it clears?

I export my transactions into a spreadsheet with macros so I can keep a close track on my financials. I track Cashflows and Net Worth separately but any changes to cashflows should match the difference in Net Worth. However, they do not match. The reason is because of pending transactions. The date on the pending transactions is always when the payment was made, so it exports with all the transactions data for the week I am exporting the data; however, because that charge still hasn't hit an account, it will not affect my Net Worth. 

I was wondering if there was any way the date for the pending payment to be the date it clears (not when the payment was actually made) - meaning it already hit an account. That way, when I export the data for the week, I will be able to export all transactions that have cleared that week, thus matching my Cash Flows with my Net Worth.

Thank you in advance!!

People come to Mint 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.
