My Bank sends nearly all payees as "On-Line Payment"

I can't seem to figure out how to get Quicken to memorize the Payee Name, that is included in the Memo field that is sent from the bank. About a year ago my Bank started sending 'On-Line Payment" as the payee - prior years they sent a payee name that was unique.

    Do you have a Renaming Rule for the Payee, and are Renaming Rules enabled? If Renaming Rules are enabled, Quicken will search the downloaded Payee and Memo fields to find text that matches that in the rule and change the Payee to the name of the rule.

    Then if you have a memorized Payee with that name, it will use the information associated with that memorized payee.

     Preferences for renaming rules are at Edit > Preferences > Downloaded transactions.

    Thx. I thought I did that, but probably incorrectly. I'll clean out all my renaming rules, and follow your suggestions. Thx again !!!!!
