Duplicate transactions recorded

How do I prevent duplicate entry of a credit card payment from my checking account? The update from my bank shows the automatic payment, but when the credit card payment is entered it enters the same payment a second time.

Answer

When you make the payment from checking to CC as a transfer, Quicken creates a matching transaction in the CC account.  When the payment is downloaded from the CC, it needs to be "matched" to the existing transaction, thus "merging" the two transactions into one with combined information.  This is done when you accept the transaction from the Downloaded Transactions tab.  Use the "edit" button to "match manually".

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.
