Rebuild Index: Command-Option-B (Quicken 2007) equivalent in Modern Quicken???

We just migrated from awesome but long in the tooth Quicken 2007 running on an emulator.

Many times our finances in Quicken 2007 were saved by the rebuild index command (Command-Option-B).

Hopefully, we'll never need it, but is there a similar command for modern Quicken for Mac?

Or have the database and file structure been optimized so that this is no longer necessary?

Thank you!

    No, there is no similar command in modern Quicken Mac. The database in Quicken 2007 was old technology and prone to some forms of corruption, creating the need to rebuild indexes. Modern Quicken Mac is built on a robust SQL database (the same which is used by various parts of macOS), and there are no user-triggered database repair functions.
