    Hello @s.coniglio3,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community regarding your issue, though I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this.

    First, could you please provide which version of Quicken you are running?
    • Windows - Help > About Quicken
    • Mac - Quicken > About Quicken
    Also, you categorized your question under Quicken on the Web. So, just to clarify, is this only happening on the Quicken Web App or is this happening on your main desktop program as well?

    Hi: Allen
    After speaking to Tech support, I had to go back to a saved backup file from an earlier date that did not have the problem and re-entry all my entries. According to Tech. support, I may have done a Quicken update while I was working on my file and that could have caused the problem.

    @Allen H guntz  @s.coniglio3 This problem in the past has seemed to be an issue between Quicken Mac and mobile/cloud syncing. You'll likely need to go back to your most recent backup. You may want to read this thread, which detailed other people having this problem, and links to other threads reporting similar problems. I believe it is an issue between Quicken Mac and Quicken mobile/cloud data, and you'll need to revert to your most recent backup before this happened, but because I've never seen it first-hand (and I don't use mobile sync), and I don't want to try to dispense too much advice here.

    I don't use mobile sync either. My problems started after the last update too 15.17.2.
