Transfer between accounts not working
I am trying to create the usual transaction entry for a credit card payment as a transfer from checking. When I create the transaction in the checking register and select the credit account as the category, Quicken removes the brackets from the account name and treats it like an ordinary category. When I create the transaction in the credit card register and select [checking] as the category, it creates the transfer entry in both registers correctly. If I then try to edit the transaction in the checking register (to add a memo or check number), the category loses the brackets and the entry disappears in the credit card register. I checked the category list and I do not have a category with the same name as the credit card account. It only seems to affect one credit card account. I can create transfer entries to other accounts in my checking account without a problem. I have run the "validate file" process, which does not detect an error.
