    Hi @ Rich Wold ,

    Are you using Online Bill Pay, or printing out the checks to be mailed?

    I am using version: R6.  on line bill pay is Direct Connect.  I never had this problem on the previous version.  Another similar issue is that when I put in a category for the payment, Quicken doesn't always recognize the same category that I have always used, even when I choose it from the list. *this even after the repair and validate) Thanks.

    Hi @ Lynn Selter ,

    Are you using the US Version or Canadian Version of Quicken, which you did not include, if you read the Article?

    From QuickenUserDC :

    For Quicken Windows - let us know if you are using the Canadian or US versions.

    Hi @ Lynn Selter ,

    What Bank is involved? Meaning, Using Online Bill Pay with Quicken and what Bank?

    image

    With PNC, there is a 4 Day Lead Window. So, if I put down to be paid on 2017-05-12, the date switches to 2017-05-14, instead.
    But if I put down to be paid on 2017-06-06, it is paid on 2017-06-06.

    I never had problems with Categories, with Checks written through Quicken, because the Checks are added to the Register at the time, I send the check through Quicken to the Bank. I control the Categories, not Quicken.

    I have the same issues as Lynn.
    today 2017-05-18 if I enter an online payment with a check date of 2017-06-06 and choose a category, the check is entered with a date of 2017-05-24 and the category is blank.  I can change them and save the check again and it will save correctly.

    Jim describes my issue perfectly.  It can change the date, leave the category blank, one or both.  I am using the US version.

    I'm using 2017 US Version and have the same problem with Quicken not liking the date I put in. However, it automatically adds a second check with the date it wants. I have to manually delete the check, or Quicken Bill Pay will get the instruction twice - once with the date I put in, and again with the Quicken generated date. Has anyone found a solution to the date/duplicate problem?

    When I "upgraded" to 2018. Dates and category will change when it goes into the register and info must be re-entered.
