Credit Card Balance Alert Problem (Right category for post?)

Quicken for Windows 45.11 build on Windows 10
I am unable to change the alert limit for one of my credit cards - Comenity Bank AAA Visa. I type in the desired value, click Okay. When it go back in to view it, it shows the old value, not the one I just entered. I've tried exiting after changing it, rebooting, cold starts, nothing seems to work. I can change the alert limit successfully on my other credit cards. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    More details, please.
    What Quicken view did you use to set the new credit card limits?
    What Quicken view are you using to display alerts?
    If possible, include screen snapshots in your next response. Capture snapshots as PNG, JPG or GIF file then drag file from Windows file explorer into your comment here.

    As I said in my post, I can change the alert limit for all of my other credit cards, just not for AAA Commenity Bank Visa.

    If you haven't done so already, please do the following actions:


    Validate and Supervalidate instructions

    First save a backup file prior to performing these steps


    1. Click File

    5. Click OK
    6. Close the Data Log

    Thanks for your help. I validated the file, and it said that I have a bad reminder (forget the exact term used). My reminder list starts with about 250 blank reminders, followed by my correct reminders. From what I've seen on this site, there is no way to delete these reminders as a group. It's taking me forever to delete one at a time. When this is done, I'll run the super-validate, and cross my fingers. As of now, it still doesn't let me update that one credit card alert limit.
