credit card payments showing as deposits

So I paid my Discover card, got the question " Is this the next scheduled payment to Discover Card....." I said "yes" now it shows as a deposit into the account from which it is scheduled to be paid from. This is not the first time this has occurred but at first I believed I must have done something wrong, this time I was very careful. Anyone else have this occur?

    How are you recording that payment?  In which account?  And, in that account, the amount is in which column? And what's the "Category" in that account?

    I recorded that payment as I have always, using "Enter" either from the "Bills and Income" tab in the Manage Bills manually, either way the Enter is the same. I put in the amount due, the account from which it should be paid is already there and then I hit enter. The question from Quicken was as stated in the initial post, I answered "yes" and it wound up in the Income column.... This was the second time my Discover bill has appeared in the "income" column following payment.

    Without seeing the Scheduled Reminder definitions that you are using, I can only guess.
    The easiest way, IHMO, would be to delete the reminder and redefine it as a transfer transaction in the Checking account, where you transfer from [Checking] to [Discover]. That would make sure the amount has the correct sign attached, negative in checking and positive in Discover.

    Thank you I deleted the entire bill and reentered everything again, this has only happened in the Discover account all others are fine. I appreciate everyone's attention and help, thanks again
