Double entries . . .
I am using Quicken Essentials for the MAC. I manually enter a check # 's in Quicken when I pay a bills. Then if I go online and update with my bank, I get the most current activity and consequently get double entires when a check that I wrote say two weeks ago clears my bank and then shows up. I then have to go and delete the old entry I made and only keep the entry for a given check that the bank has posted. How can I avoid this double entry business? Lately, I have written checks and simply kept a handwritten page on paper and not posted that in my Quicken but that sure is archaic. Am I missing something?
