Are category lists attached to each data file or the individual Quicken ID?
I'm using Quicken 2017 H&B. I have two separate Quicken data files. One to track regular monthly finances and accounts (File A) and the second a to track retirement accounts (File . I recently deleted most categories not investment related from the category list in File B. Now, when I do a One Step Update on File A, the category list is replaced with the one from File B. All existing transactions that were given a category like 'Groceries' or 'Auto:Fuel' are now shown as Uncategorized because the category was deleted during the update. How can I resolve this? Now, If I make any changes to the category list from either data file, it now migrates to the other. They are basically syncing for some reason. I have two separate data files for a reason. I'd like to keep their categories lists separate too.
