Why doesn't the Find option work any longer?

While in the check register, I often use the Ctrl F to see if an entry has been previously entered. This function is not working when I look for a check number. This function seems to be working when I put in "some" amounts. What happened to this tool? I need to be able to search for previously entered check numbers.

    What version of Quicken (Help > About Quicken) are you using.  It's working for me with V 24.14

    If your purpose is "to see if an entry has been previously entered", you can set a preference to warn you if a check number is reused.

    Previously discussed without resolution. Have used the general search for years. With the current Quicken Premier version it now has a problem. Example: search for BILLPAY is OK while search for 6142 fails to return the check number entry. Yes there is a 6142 check number in the file. This is new for I have used this function for probably decades. Quite frustrating.

    I suggest you use the register search filter at the upper right of the register.

    I think this is related. I discovered the same issue when some downloaded transactions weren't matching to the register. I believe it has been limited to checks as those are the items that can't be found on a search.

    Has this not been resolved yet? I am matching transactions and a cleared check won't match the check in the register. But I was able to search for the check number now.

    I think the bug has been resolved.  I'm no longer able to reproduce the issue using R26.23.

    I should have noted I am on R26.23 as well.
