Auto-Fil in Registers

I am puzzled.  When I click on a Downloaded Transaction in my Credit card register; the entire entry pre-fills.  The correct Payee displays but the category is wrong.  Lets say the downloaded Payee is Walmart; Walmart is in the Payee Block...but Household is in Category.  I have deleted all WalMart memorized payees....  When I type in the payee Block Walmart...the dropdown does not show Walmart as a choice.

So if I have no memorized payees or, when I type in Walmart...nothing shows Walmart..why when I click on a Credit card Transaction to save it in the register....does the category fill with Household?

    That's just a default category by assumption. You have to change it to an appropriate category yourself.

    There are 2 preference settings you should disable. In Edit>Preferences>Downloaded transactions, uncheck "Automatically categorize transactions" and "Automatically apply Quicken's suggested name to payee". That will prevent auto-fill of anything other than a memorized payee.
