How do I remove old budget years?

When I call up my monthly budget report, it defaults to the year 2014. I recently removed old budgets (about 15 years worth), and I copied the current budget to a new budget, but it still has old budget years. I would like to delete some of the old budget years from my newly copied. Is there a way to do that?

    Nope, I'm afraid not.  Once you a year is in the budget, either older or future, it can't be removed.  They never provided for doing that.

  • I have "check books" going back to 2014. May I clear those out? I would like to clear all those out before 2021.

    I would recommend not doing that.  The long and the short of it is that you will create a mess in Quicken by doing that and you may need those records in the future.

    If you really determined to get rid of the old budget years I suggest you delete the whole budget, and create a new one.  But I would wait until 2021 since creating it now will create a 2020 budget, and then when 2021 comes around it will be extended into 2021.
