Post dated transaction entered in checkbook
In January 2018, I downloaded a newer version of Quicken Premier for Windows 10 after having an older version for many years that worked wonderfully without erros. I do not use the bank transaction download features online; I prefer the old fashioned way of entering them myself. I pay some bills online, post dating them, and then enter them with the post-dated date in Quicken. Most of the time they show up at the bottom of the ongoing list of transactions but they are shaded a little darker, indicating they have not paid yet. Occasionally it happens that these post-dated transactions don't show up at the bottom/end of the list of transactions. If I search for them, they will show up in the search feature but they are sometimes not listed at the bottom with all the other transactions. It appears they are included in the current balance. Why will these post-dated transaction not show up (shaded darker) all the time? This is very frustrating. Since upgrading to a newer version of Quicken, I have never felt confident that I can trust the amount of funds Quicken says I have verses what the bank says (minus the transactions that have not cleared yet).
