    In Quicken Deluxe Mac ver. 6, select the transaction, hold the Option key, click the trash can Delete button at the bottom of the register. You'll get a fancier Delete dialog where you can force-delete the transaction.

    The Accepted Answer (new account, copy/paste, delete old account) doesn't work if the account contains payments. Quicken won't let you move them.

    Please be more specific about what you mean by a pending transaction. Is this a scheduled transaction, or is it a payment instruction that has been sent to the bank? If the latter, is it a Direct Connect Bill Pay or Quicken Bill Pay?

  • A couple of months ago a partial copy of my primary check register showed up in my Quicken 2020 for Mac account, but I don't know why. I was able to delete all the transactions except the one in question. It was a scheduled transaction (this one dated 08/02/2019) instructing my bank to make monthly payments to the payee, and in the Check # column is the word "Sent."

    Try this: Double click the transaction, then click the Edit Details blue button:




    In the pane that appears, click the Online Payment tab, then Cancel Payment:

  • Nope. There is no Online Payment tab under Edit Details. I’m running Quicken Deluxe 2020 for Mac, Version 5.13.3 (Build 513.30586.100). I've attached a screenshot.

    I'm afraid I don't have an answer. At this point, rather than fighting with it, I think I'd just put in an offsetting transaction to make the balance right, consider it a one time glitch, and be done with it.

  • Can I backup just the accounts I want to keep, delete and reinstall Quicken, then restore the accounts I want to keep?
