Using any of the links that go to the old PayPal history no longer works; they take you to a page that looks the same, but when you try to use any of the controls it takes you to a new page that is just a list of transactions, there's no way to see a running balance.
This often-given advice also does not work:
"Go to Activity page and click "Statements". You can do a search and elect to show running balance by choosing "Custom" option."
Going to that area does not give you an option to select a running balance, and the "statement" that is generated does not include a running balance.
A running balance is a basic requirement for any financial service… How do we get there from here?
