    I assume you're referring to the drop down list that's available in the "Check #" column of a checking Account?
    If you click on the "down arrow" in that Check # column, down at the bottom of the list is an "Edit List" button.  Click on that to either delete or add user-defined items.

    Hi @ekrubmeg

    It sounds like you want to edit the drop down list for the "Check #" field in a checking account register.  I have good news and bad news for you.  The good news is that you can "edit" that field by:

    1) Clicking in that field, then pressing the down arrow, and selecting "Edit List" - see the snip below.
    2) Deleting any items you may have added, over time.

    The bad news is that the standard "Quicken determined" items - the first 6 with check marks on the snip above - are set by the application and cannot be deleted.

    Let me know if you have any followups.

    OK, this is the craziest thing. I got on a thing where I was just checking on that top line to see the list.. My bad or bad weed or something. Curiously enough, now that I clicked on the block further down, I see the list as you show above. the real good news is that funny problem I was having has now disappeared. thanks to all that tried and did help. I just needed to get out of a rut of doing the wrong thing.. Thanks again
