Non Linked Bill and Income Reminders; Stale Reminder prompts on entry.

I do not use Quicken BillPay.
I ported from 2017 Home and Business.

I have three weekly reminders. The amounts changed ~ 6 weeks ago. I deleted the reminders and created new ones (In a different account).

Each time I enter one of these reminders (manually thru Bill and Income Reminders) I get six prompts (Stale prompts) . They appear to be for the 2 deleted reminders on three successive days. (Around the time I deleted them, cannot be sure)

After I suffer thru the six prompts and save the entry the entry shows as 'skipped'.

I checked 'Bill Income Reminder' list: These entries do not exist.
I checked 'Memorized Transactions' list: One of the entries did exist, I deleted it, restarted Quicken. I still get the same prompts, same dates.
This happens weekly.

Is there a way to delete these stale prompts?

    I am on Build
    I performed the standard validate file procedure and the stale prompts appear to have disappeared.

    Todays transactions are in the future, they now show Status as 'Skipped' in the Bill and Income Reminders pane. 'Skipped' is nonsensical, as they have been 'Entered'.... But that is a different issue..

    Thank You for your help!
