I accidentally accepted 1050 duplicate transactions into my credit card account. I read that I should click the gear icon in upper right corner and click edit/delete multiple transactions. My gear icon does not offer that option. Thanks.

    The sort order you want is Order Entered. This will put the newly entered transactions at the bottom of the register. This sort order is available in the register's gear menu.

    Then select the bottom-most transaction via left-click. Scroll up to the first duplicate and Shift-left-click it. This will select all the transactions in between as well.

    Then Ctrl-D will delete them all.

    If you sort your register by the date entered, you should be able to then highlight them all and delete. I'd make a copy of your data file first though.

    They are sorted by date. I can delete individually but would like to know how to highlight en mass so I can delete 100's at a time. Thank you

    A voila!!!! Thank you so very much Rocket Squirrel! Quicken certainly doesn't make it easy. I will make a note of this. I hope I've done all I need to do to give you credit due. I ticked the "Yes" question answered box. If there is something else, please let me know. Best.....
