ATM cash not in Cash account

I took cash out at an ATM. It showed up in my Checking account and I categorized it as "Cash & ATM." I thought it would automatically show in my Cash account but it's not. Do I have to enter a manual transaction in my Cash account too?

    Is "Cash & ATM" the name of your cash account in Quicken?  For it to be a transfer, it needs square brackets around the account's name like [Cash * ATM] in the category field.  If not, you didn't do a transfer, you just used it as a category.

    I suggest you enter the transaction as a transfer from your checking account to the cash account you're using to track your cash transactions.
