Why wont my transactions stay in the order that I enter them. On a date, if I enter a depost. then

enter a payment, the payment is shown ahead of the deposit, which wrongly changes the balance.

    I don't know about Mac Quicken but in Windows you can sort by Order Entered, which is handy when doing a lot of entries.  While in a register, click on "Account Actions", select "Sorting Options", select "by order entered" should get you what you are looking for. Or for earlier versions click Options at the top of the register on the right side. If you sort by anything other than the Date column you might not get a true running balance.  So after you sort and look around be sure to sort it back by the Date.

    To sort in Quicken 2013 or newer for Windows click on the little gear icon in the upper right of the register's header area. One of the options is Sorting Options and you can choose By Order Entered.

    Note that there are two gear icons. You want the one in the header area with the little down-arrow next to 

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    In Q Mac, you can manually reorder transactions on the same date by dragging and dropping one transaction in between two others.
