Memorized Payees with same payee name number limited to 9

Why is there a limit on the number of memorized payees with the same payee name.  I have several savings categories and routinely use "Withdrawal from Goal" in connection with paying different credit cards.  I can not get Quicken to retain more than 9 versions of "Withdrawal from Goal".  I am able to add a new one manually (but not by using Cntrl "M" on a selected transaction).  If I do that the new memorized payee never appears in the list), but within a few days the list is trimmed back to 9.  My guess is that someone put a limit in the display list when quicken opens.  This isn't needed

    Until someone figures out what's going on here, how about setting up distinct Payee Names for each type of "Withdrawal from goal", e.g.,
    • "Withdrawal from goal (X)"
    • "Withdrawal from goal (Y)"
    • "Withdrawal from goal (Z)"
    which gets around the apparent limit of 9 entries with the same Payee Name and achieves the same result.

    I found a way around the limit on the number of payees with the same payee name.  In using Withdrawal From Goal, I just added a distinction like UKR suggested, but used the curly brackets that Quicken ignores so a group of entries would read "Withdrawal From Goal{Visa}.  This solved the problem for me
