Problems entering paycheck pre-tax deductions

I'm entering a new paycheck for a new job. There is a 401K deduction that will accrue to a new account that I've set up in Quicken. However, when I'm entering the new deduction, the new account does not show up as a potential transfer account in the drop-box. Not sure why this is happening or how I work around it. Any guidance would be appreciated.
I'm using the Quicken Home, Business and Rental Property, version R38.30 on a PC.

    Hi @BrewDog,

    It is likely that you'll need to look for the account at the bottom of the pop-up list, because it should appear in brackets, and they are all at the bottom.  This is how it should look as part of the payroll entry - please note the brackets.


    Let me know if you have any followups.

    Frankx, thank you for the response. I had neglected to mention that I was trying to enter my paycheck as a recurring entry using paycheck wizard. Other community comments (plus my experience) indicate that the wizard feature is infested with problems. Your way (above) is better.
    Best,
