I am getting multiple entries showing on my Projected Balances for income and expense accounts

In Projected balances I get multiple entries for various income and expense accounts even though the reminders are only listed once. I have Verified the file, Super Verified the file, I have remove the reminder and reentered the reminder and then different accounts start showing multiple entries. See screen shots.

    Hello @RAMounts

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to ask your question, although I apologize that you have not received a response.

    In the screenshots, the pop states that the "Food for All" is scheduled for Friday, May 15th. I also see that this scheduled for the 28th. What is the frequency of this bill?

    Do you have any reminders for this from the previous month that were skipped or still scheduled possibly?

    Please let me know!

    The Food reminders on Saturdays are once a week. The problem is that one the one screenshot showing Justice For All is an income reminder, every two weeks but it shows on that date three deposits are being shown for the same amount. Same with the other screenshot showing Systems and Services is for once a month but is showing being scheduled for payment four times where is should be one time each month. It also shows the same for every month after.

    Hello @RAMounts,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community to tell us about your issue, though I apologize that you are experiencing this.

    May I ask; when you validated/super validated the file, did you create a copy of your data file before doing so, or did you do so in your current file without creating a copy first?

    If you haven't already, I suggest you create a copy of your data file first, in an attempt to rebuild all of the internal lists and database tables. Then, try to Validate your data file in the copied file by following the steps below. However, I do recommend that you also save a backup of your data file first before trying these steps (just in case).
    1. Navigate to the File menu
    2. Select File Operations
    3. Copy...
    4. Leave the presets as is and click OK
    5. Wait for the copy procedure to complete
    6. Select New Copy and click OK                                                                              If Quicken reports an error when creating the Copy file, then hold Ctrl + Shift while you click File > File Operations > Copy. When prompted to "Ignore errors that prevent file copy?" click Yes. Note: Only do this if you receive an error as this may cause some data loss.
    7. Once the newly copied file opens, navigate back to the File menu
    8. Select File Operations
    9. Validate and Repair...
    10. Select Validate file
    11. Click OK
    12. Close the Data Log
    13. Close Quicken (leave it closed for at least 5 secs)
    14. Reopen Quicken and see if the issue persists.
    You can also try to Super validate the copied file by holding down the Ctrl + Shift keys on your keyboard while selecting Validate and Repair... (step 9) which will give you the option to Super validate file instead of Validate file.

    If this does not resolve the issue, you can either switch back to your original file or restore the backup you saved prior to performing the above troubleshooting instructions (both the original and backup files should remain unaffected by the steps performed in the copied file).

    Follow the steps below to switch back to your original file
    1. Click the File menu.
    2. Look near the bottom of the options list.
    3. Select the data file you want to open. 

    Quicken will list the most recently opened data files, with a checkmark next to the file you are currently viewing.

    Let us know how it goes!
