delete 100s of downloaded transactions.

After reestablishing connections with Charles Schwab on the required change, I have 100s of duplicate transactions in 9 accounts. I started the multiple delete process. It worked on one account.
1. The next accounts would not allow multiple select ?
2. the delete button does not appear at the bottom of the D/L box anymore?
3. What does Near Match mean?

    The deleting of multiple transactions in the Downloaded Transactions tab was only implemented in non investment accounts.  For investment accounts you will have to accept the transactions into the register and delete them there, or delete them one at a time in the Downloaded Transactions tab.
    Note there is now an "Edit Multiple transactions" menu item in the gear icon menu at the top right of the register that you can use to delete multiple transactions.

    Near Match means that "it is mostly correct", for instance the date in the register might be yesterday and the downloaded date is today.

    Editing and deleting 100s of duplicate transactions manually could be mind numbing. I recommend, Before accepting all those transactions into the investment accounts, select 'Reconciled Shares'. Then 'Edit Multiple Transactions'. It is easier to spot the duplicates in those lists especially the 'c' and 'R' ones. Be careful not to just delete all cleared 'c' transactions since they may not be duplicates. The lists can also be sorted in various ways. That can eliminate the majority of the duplicates. The remaining transactions must be dealt with individually. Make several backups as you go through this. Other helpful tools are in the Gear box in the upper right corner of investment registers.

    Accepting a NEAR MATCH does not create a duplicate transaction.

    Finally, I downloaded transactions on 2 of 3 of my accounts. But alas, downloaded all transactions for more than 18 months. I needed only last 2 weeks' transactions.
    Provide a date after which transactions can be accepted. This Charles Schwab process created a mess. I have more than 1000 duplicate transaction in 3 Schwab accounts. There is no way to accept these. Also, the symbol of the Option securities are different from what Schwab provided.

    Please note that you aren't talking to the Quicken developers, so you request isn't going to them.  But even if it was there is little chance that they are going to be able to change the way Quicken works in very short period of time to help you with this problem.

    You are most likely going to have to accept those transaction into the register and delete them using the method I described in my first comment above.

    ESKrish I know what you mean. I had 7 Schwab accounts to fix after my reconnection to Schwab. Check my comment of Nov 20. Maybe it will help.

    will check whether accepting into a new account will help. Then copy/paste only needed transactions into the existing account. Before accepting transactions, it is asking me to create the securities. That is also a painful. I have transactions from 1997 and so many securities
