I guess we're not communicating on the same wavelength. If I try to change a recurring bill in the register, Quicken gives me three choices: (1) Mark as paid; (2) Skip this instance; or (3) Edit this and future transactions. It does not give me the option to edit just one instance of the recurring transaction without changing any future transactions. Sorry if I didn't answer your original question but I didn't understand it.
