How to change an account #


I have gotten a new account # for one of my payees. I discovered that that's not one of the fields you can edit, so I deleted and set up a new one with the new information. And i get "The payee has already been entered into Quicken …." I though maybe it had to be restarted to "forget" the payee, but no dice. What do I have to do to get Quicken to forget the old payee.

    Is this account set up for downloading? If so, you need to deactivate the download in order to change the account number. Then, you can re-establish download for the account.
