    Hello @mwradcliffe,

    Thank you for contacting the Quicken Community. 

    First, I suggest creating a test file and adding the American Express account(s) to see if the same issue occurs with how the transactions are downloaded. You can create a test file by navigating to File > New > Start from Scratch. Please keep in mind that it is recommended to save a backup before proceeding with troubleshooting steps (just in case).

    Let me know how it goes!

    Are these debit card transactions?
    Looks to me like "WHOLEFDS" is the payee name.
    A Quick Fill or Renaming Rule "WHOLEFDS" -> "Whole Foods" should be able to take care of the problem, but somebody who has more experience with Q Mac than myself needs to explain what to do.
    You may want to talk to your bank or credit card company and ask that they properly format the downloaded Payee Name for use with Quicken.

    Thanks for the response. I have no problem with other cards, the payee name is correctly put in the payee column. It appears that because my wife also has a card, every transaction record begins with my name or her name and that this may be the issue, in which case there is no solution.
