Unable to Change the Name of an Account

sgj31 Member ✭✭
I changed the name of an account and went to change it back and now it says I can't because there is already an account of the same name. There isn't another account ever with this name. I just renamed it and am wanting to change it back.

    Like an elephant, Quicken never forgets.

    Restore a backup from before you renamed the account.

    Every account has a entry in the category list with square brackets around it ( [checking] ) and if it is there and is used in a transfer, it would keep you from reusing it as long as the "category" exists.
