Many years ago I did a short contract at a FX trading bank and my job was to create a trading report.

While I was there I found out why the report was needed.

The bank had managed to misplace a couple of million dollars in a missing trade.

They did an audit, trying and find out what happened to the missing money and came to the conclusion someone had accidentally deleted a row from the spread sheet being used to record the trades.
