Utilization

Are "Credit Limits" for closed revolving credit accounts included in the "Total credit available" number?
 
I'm having a heck of a time trying to reconcile the numbers on mr reports.
FICO scores on November 17, 2014 (prior to applying for and being approved my mortgage)

EX=738
EQ=735
TU=754

FICO scores on March 4, 2015 after being approved for mortgage and buying the home, the mortgage isn't yet reporting.
EX- 689 EQ- 739 TU- 739

Re: Utilization

how about LOC's or HELOC's?

This is where Excel makes it easier- to figure it out.

LOC has zero balance. No HELOC.

Re: Utilization

if you can't get it figured out-
Post the balances/CL's and the UTL myFICO is displaying and we can help figure it out.
