Unable to edit or delete reminders imported from Mac Quicken in Windows Quicken

I just transferred my Mac Quicken to Windows using the facility provided. All seemed to go great. However, I now see that I have a problem. All imported reminders are uneditable and undeleteable. I have the buttons which seem to allow edit and skip. Neither does anything. When I attempt to delete, the program says "not allowed." Help.

    Hello @benno,   

    We are sorry to hear about this issue with Reminders that can't be edited or removed. Thank you for looking to the Quicken Community for assistance.

    First, save a backup by navigating to File > Copy or Backup File... in the upper menu at the top of the screen, then follow the instructions provided below, in order:
    1. Navigate to File
    2. Select Validate and Repair File...
    3. Select Validate File
    4. Click OK
    5. Close the Data Log
    6. Close Quicken (leave it closed for at least 5 secs)
    7. Reopen Quicken and see if the issue persists. 

    If you are still noticing difficulties after you have attempted those recommendations, you may try the following: 

    1. Navigate to File
    2. Hold CTRL + Shift and click Validate and Repair File...
    3. Select Super Validate File
    4. Click OK
    5. Close the Data Log
    6. Close Quicken (leave it closed for at least 5 secs)
    7. Reopen Quicken and see if the issue persists.

    Let us know how this works.

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared

    I'm curious of what Validate and Repair did.  Did it fix the reminders or just remove them?
