Invoices - Auto Entry of Customer Address in Bill & Ship to Fields

When filling out an invoice for a customer already in the customer list, their address does not show up in the Bill to and Ship To fields.  Shouldn't it?  It's not very convenient to have to type it in each time.  I have the QuickFill buttons checked in the customer information screens.
    I'm the person who originally asked this question back in February, and today my son came up with the solution.  Yay, Kevin!  

    Go to Edit-Preferences-Quicken Program-Register-QuickFill.  Be sure 'Recall Memorized Payees' is checked.  As a point of information, everything else in the two lists of options is also checked, with the exception of 'Provide drop-down lists on field entry'.  

    As soon as I checked that field my Customer Address field populated when I picked the customer, and typing an apostrophe in the Ship To field populated that with the information also (Thank You to NoWayJose).

    I hope this saves some time and frustration to all of you who have also experienced this problem, and I thank everyone who tried to help.
      It definitely should.  But, you don't need quickfill for it to work.  Check the address book (Business/Customers/Add Customers) and make sure the customer's address is saved in the address book.

It has happened since the beginning.  It is a new Quicken file, started when I began using the software.

It didn't make a difference.  Do you have any further ideas?
                    In playing around some more, we installed Quicken Home & Business 2009 on an XP machine and restored the current data from the Vista machine.  Nothing changed.    Thinking the data might be corrupt, I started a new Quicken file with a different name, added one customer and set up an invoice account.  The Bill To and Ship To fields were still not populated after selecting the customer, who was included in the Quickfill and Customer Lists.  Does anyone use Quicken Home and Business 2009, and have this feature work?  Could there be a bug in the software?
