    This sounds like a problem where data from Quicken Cloud is overwriting your local data. Are these memos you entered manually after downloading transactions? Do you use the mobile app or web interface? If yes, do you do a manual sync after entering the memos and before you quiet Quicken? If no, is Sync turned off in Preferences > Mobile, Web & Alerts?

  • No Mobil App, I use my Mac desk top. Yes I add my personal notes after each down load. My automatic sync is turned on.Thank you Jacobs. Any other suggestions.

    Yes, the suggestion is to turn Sync to OFF since you are not using the mobile app. After you turn Sync off, take the additional step of going to Preferences > Connected Services and clicking the button to reset your Cloud account. After doing this, your transaction data will not exist in Quicken Cloud, and it can't overwrite the data in your local file.

    Hello @Bob in Temple

    I am sorry to hear that the issue is persisting. I appreciate your efforts in continuing to follow up with us about this. 

    Where is the data file you are currently using located? You can always check the name of the data file by going to File > Open Recent in the menu at the top of the screen while Quicken is open. You can then check the location of the data file by going to File > Show "(data file name will be shown here)" in Finder. Storing an active data file in an external drive or cloud-based storage service and opening it from that source can cause issues like those you described, and hence, it is recommended that this be avoided. 

    I look forward to working with you further on this problem here in this discussion. 

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared
