Is there a way to disable sorting of the columns

syoungkin Member
My 82 year old mother often accidentally clicks on the column headers which causes the transactions to be resorted. I know she can just reclick on the appropriate column and it will sort it back the way she wants but, being 82, she has trouble remembering that and it frustrates her and my father because they aren't seeing the transactions in the order they expected and they think they "messed up their checkbook".

Is there a way to lock the sorting so that she can't accidentally resort the columns?

    No, I'm afraid not.

    It really would be nice to be able to set the sort order the way you want it to stay, (personal default). Right now the default is by date, rather than by date, order entered, which is the way Quicken downloads the transactions. (Counter productive to me) This seems very unpractical and illogical.

    With as much as you have to compare to bank statements to correct download errors, the least that could be done is to make that process easier if they can't fix the downloading error issues. Just why is the default "by date" instead of by date, order entered" thee default anyway? What am I missing here? (I've written posts about not being to set that default the way you want it before)

    What exactly does it "mean", not what it does, when it says sort by date. There must be a definitive explanation for "By Date", what qualifications does it use to sort by date? There must be a reason that is the default.
