    This is how your bank downloads the transaction to Quicken. If you don't know what it is for, you should call your bank.

    Another thing to consider is that many of us put our transactions in before downloading them. Quicken will be able to find and match them after you download and then you'll already have the correct payee, date, and category entered.

    Thanks but I would not ever enter the data first. That was Quicken 1st edition for me 100 years ago.
    The bank did change the way they input Payee data and claim if I click on the field all the info will show up. That is not happening. Does Quicken limit the number of characters it will download in the Payee field?

    Yes you are so right. I'm a "live with it" sort of gal. Thanks for the chat.
