autofilling not filling

i have version 27.1.13.12 Quicken 2020. Since the previous update, autofilling has stopped providing choices to select. Now, I have to exactly type out the entire category correctly each time (no typo's)

    I suggest you check the Complete fields using previous entries preference: select Edit Preferences...

    Hi Sherlock, I already checked that and it was as you indicate above. And this issue seems to have appeared out of no where, with me not having changed anything.
    Sometimes when update Quicken, some of our preferences are reset.   You might try toggling the preference off and the on again to see if you can coerce Quicken into the proper behavior.  

    If the issue persists, you may want to review: https://www.quicken.com/support/advanced-data-file-troubleshooting-correct-problems-quicken-windows

    I suggest you attempt to locate a good backup.  If not, try the Copy and Validate instructions.
