why does quicken report miss key words in the memo section?
This had been a recurring problem. Today I spent an hour looking for a receipt where I had recorded the following in the memo section, "pvc air hose sku= 2073825". I tried to make a report using "reports / spending / itemized categories / customize; date set was 2015-current. I was very certain that I had the correct payee so I entered the payee name. I searched on "air" and got no result. I searched on "hose" and got no result. Then I dropped the payee name. I got no result. I went to the payee account then went to Edit / find / entered "memo contains air" and went through all the transactions containing "air" manually until I came to the correct transaction. Quicken is supposed to save me time. I invest time entering the data for every purchase and quicken cannot find it to make a report. Frustrated...again.
