How to delete massive number of downloaded transactions?

(Quicken 2009 for Windows)  My bank is going through some website changes. I tried to download transactions for the last two DAYS.  The website DUMPED nearly 1870 transactions from Sept. 2010 into that download.  There is no way for me to see how many transactions are in the download before it shows up for me to accept!   

As far as I can see, there is not a way to get rid of these besides Edit > Delete. > Yes...for each and every one of the 1869 transaction!
How do I delete this entire file that was downloaded?

Before you do what Betsys suggests (and assuming we're talking about a non-investment account):

Add a dummy transaction to the register, put something in the Memo field to help you recognize it.

Do an "Accept All".

In the register "View" menu, select "Sort by order entered".

Then follow Betsys' instructions, selecting the "dummy" transaction (as the "first transaction") through the last transaction in the register.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
