'Security Name is Required' popup appears each time I open the window to enter a transaction

I receive a 'Security Name is Required' popup even before I have a chance to enter the security. It's as if I tried to record a security that wasn't recognized or that I had left it blank and I'm prompted to enter one. I hit ok, the popup disappears, and then I'm free to enter the security to record the dividend.

    Thankyou very much for responding! This happened at the same time as I upgraded to the latest version of Quicken, so perhaps 2 - 3 months. Please see screen shot if that would help. Every time I try and enter a dividend this pops up.

    I tried what you suggested, just Tabbing to the Security Name vice clicking on it and I did NOT receive the popup! Thanks so much for your insight Jim!!
