Register is automatically adding check number to some transactions

Sometimes when I enter a transaction, a check number is automatically entered (even when it's a deposit!)  There are 2 payees that this happens with, and they are both memorized payees.  There is no place in the memorized payee edit screen for a check number, so I'm not sure why this is happening, but I'd sure like it to stop!  Any suggestions?

    Which version of Quicken are you using? Is it for PC or Mac?

    Hello there. Thank you for the information.

    Have you tried to turn off the check numbering by switching to another category? (ATM, Deposit, Etc)

    More information is available here: https://www.quicken.com/support/configuring-check-numbers

    Hope this is helpful.

    Respectfully,
    ~ Quicken Harold.

    I usually just leave that field blank unless I need to enter a check number.  On the majority of my transactions, it just stays blank when I record it, but on 2 of my memorized payees, as soon as I enter the payee, it assigns the next check number.

    I would delete the 2 MPs and create them again to see if the issue continues.

    John basically the same answer Splasher gave.  The check number must be saved in your memorized payee (it does that) even though you can't see it or change it.  You will need to delete the memorized payee and recreate it with check number field blank.
