Thank you @mhildebr.
Your tip worked! I had a Acct_4 listed. One extra tip: When viewing the category list, select “View Full list” that was the only way for me to find the mystery account. It was at the top of my full category list. Once I deleted it I was able to add sub-categories as usual.
Thank you again @mhildebr !!!!
Deleting 'Acct…" fixed the issue for me as well. Thank you for the post!
I had the same problem of being unable to create subcategories. After reading the posts above, I looked for bogus accounts. I found and removed an account called ACCT_6033 and that fixed the problem. I have no idea where this account came form - something Quicken created, not one of mine.
I love the Internet! Thanks for these tips, which worked for me. This just started happening for me about 2 months ago, so I'm not sure when the bug/phantom category was introduced into my list, but deleting it solved the problem.
Soooo frustrating. I too have this "Can't Create Subcategories" or "Edit Subcategories" issue. I tried the posted solutions (for some), and they are not working for me. I don't have any bogus "ACCT_xxx" categories, nor do I have any categories that mirror account names. Stuck. Cannot create or edit subcategories.
When I attempt to do so, I see the same as many posters of this problem. The displayed category list in the drop down menu is incomplete. Thus, cannot select the parent category I want because most of them are not displayed.
Would appreciate any new solution. TIA
