    Do you actually receive an error message -
    about max number of transactions reached ?
    Do you happen to know what version you are running - ... Help --> About Quicken
    Here is what my file looks like - with Transactions --> 25,931

    No. I do not receive any msg. Just when I try to enter again gets an irrecoverable error.
    I run an old version of the program: Quicken 2000.

    @camilo has definitely has problems when the number of transactions in one account reaches about that amount.  Is this in one account?  If so you should split it off and start a new account.

    I would do a File > File Operations > Copy using a cutoff date that would leave half the transactions behind.

    I have got one account. If I create a second account, the problem would disappear?

    @camilo You will need to move some of the transactions from one account to another.  And in fact with that many transactions in one register I would suggest actually going to 3 account registers.  Anything over 32,000 seems to be pushing it for Quicken.

    Here are some instructions on how to move transactions.
    Note that given you have a crash you might have to do this from a restored backup before the crashing started, and then reenter what is missing from that backup.

    Thank you, Chris.
    Actually this Quicken old version is all I need to trace my accounts and investments. It works pretty well and I think it is not worth to migrate (and pay for it) to the last version.

    A problem I got in all these years using Quicken 2000 is that sometimes working with divided transactions it changes my notes for N/A, losing the phrases I wrote. Do you know anything about it?

    When things start to change to N/A in Quicken it usually means that the data file is getting corrupted in some way.

    Is there any way to recover those N/A data? Thk.

    Validate might, or might not help.  Other than that, restore from backup.

    A thought out of left field: I wonder if Quicken is overflowing the largest unsigned 16-bit integer somewhere in the code. Quicken claims to allow an unlimited number of transactions, but Quicken has been known to have a bug or two once in a while.

    @Rocket J Squirrel interesting idea, maybe that is it, but if it is, it isn't the number of transactions directly like allocating an array for each transaction.

    16-bit signed numbers go up to 32,678.  Unsigned they go up to 65,535.

    Neither of these numbers line up "exactly" with the number of transactions

    My guess really would be more on something like them allocating memory for some use and then maybe running into some kind of restriction in old Windows allocation sizes.

    Sure. But OP's guess of "about 66,200" struck me as enough to overflow an unsigned short.
