I'm not sure when this lost capability happened, but the menu on the Reports:Custom:Display is missing all column options like selecting columns or resetting column sizes. I've validated and repaired my file.

    If you haven't already, I suggest you select Reset Columns: open the report and press Alt + C
  • Thanks, but that's the problem. The menu for editing columns, including Reset Columns' doe not show up on the Custom:Display tab.

    A screen capture of the issue may help.

    This is an example of what you should see:

    Your image file was empty - zero bytes. Try again?

    A comparison report doesn't have transactional field columns that may be customized.  You may be able to adjust the columns displayed on the report using the Columns: pull-down menu.

    If you are trying to reuse a saved report which was created in an earlier version of Quicken, try to recreate the report from scratch and customize it to your needs. Once it's working correctly, re-save the report, replacing the old saved report.
  • Thanks all. In my experience, nearly every time Quicken gets an update something breaks with custom reports I've created. I'll try the suggestions above. Where do I find the 'Columns' pull-down menu?

    You can find it in the Customize dialog's Display tab. Notice that not all types of report have the Columns pull-down list. See the image of a Transaction report provided above by @Sherlock for an example.

    When available, the Columns: pull-down menu is at the top of the report.  For example:


    The Compare to: pull-down menu may also impact the columns displayed.
