How to handle Seasonal Reminders - Income/Paychecks and Expenses

I have searched and searched and I can't seem to find a feature that allows me to enter a paycheck with a stop date, or in other words a paycheck that I will receive only for a specific time. For example if I were a public school teacher and had different employment over the summer, how do I tell my budget planner and my paycheck planner that I receive my two paychecks at different times? I am currently running Quicken Premier 2003, if the feature is not available in 2003 does it occur in later editions?Thanks for any help C.L. Rogers

    You can't do this with a paycheck, but you can do it with a regular scheduled transactions. Look at an existing register entry for your paycheck and examine the splits. Then create a scheduled transaction using the same split categories and amounts.

    Happen to just run across this "expense" concept again - similar to paycheck...
    SO... for lawn care or other seasonal income/expense -
    how do you setup a Reminder to handle it,
    and be able to specify a start and stop set of dates...

    There's at least one Idea about setting End Dates on a paycheck reminder:
    The Start Date is the Due Date you specify for recording the first transaction.
    Vote on it and keep looking. You might find other Idea posts.
