Why isn't Quicken updating my manually entered transactions - filename (from HP Pavilion - 21)
I use Quicken for basic purposes. I manage about 15 or so accounts at work and need to know how much money is in each. I manually enter transactions from expenditure reports. Every time I open Quicken it automatically goes to that file, which has [HOME] after the file name when it is open on my screen. I assume this is the default file - I don't open and close or use other files. I have all my accounts in this file. About a month ago I updated a half dozen reports as I usually do. Today I opened Quicken and it went automatically to the file that it always does (with [HOME] after the file name at the top of my screen) but my entries from last month were not there. Upon closer inspection under the File>Open Quicken File... tab I noticed there are over 20 versions of my file, with most having the same date and time stamp (but not all). Each version had my computer name after the file name along with a number in parentheses. The file that I automatically opened today was there without any additional names after it (no [HOME] or computer name or number). I assume this is the default file that I always work on. I opened the file from a month ago (which was the most recent file not including today) that had the file name, my computer name, and the number 21 added to my file name and it contained all of my accounts with the entries and was up to date. Why did this happen? Now when I start quicken, the file with my computer name and 21 opens automatically and it now seems that it is the default. But now under the File>Open Quicken File... tab I can see my original default file (without the computer name and without a number) but it is now an outdated file that does not contain my latest entries. What gives? Must I now search for the latest file every time I open Quicken and ignore what opens automatically?
