Can the future paycheck wizard look how it used to?

Options

When I enter my paycheck it opens as a nice, easy to edit table. When I try to edit all future paychecks it used to be the same table, but now it is not.

    Thanks. So this issue has been around for a while and is not one which popped up with R56.9. Good to know.

    As I understand it you want to see the Paycheck Reminder, not a split categories Income Reminder.

    I know that when clicking on Paycheck Wizard there are 2 options: One for Net amount and the other for Gross amount. Selecting the Net amount option will result in a split categories Income Reminder. Selecting the Gross amount option will result in a Paycheck Reminder. That's all pretty straight forward. But your issue is that you had originally selected the Gross amount option and correctly got a Paycheck Reminder but later it turned into a split category Income Reminder. Did I get this right?

    That seems right. I added a new paycheck using this and it looks the old way.

    Thank you.

    By "easy to edit table" do you mean the Paycheck Wizard transaction? And, what does it look like now … just a split transaction?

    That 1st picture you posted is of the Paycheck Wizard splits.

    When you click on Split as shown Details box in the 2nd picture, what do you see? Could you post a picture of that (removing or redacting any personal information)?

    Also, which version of Quicken Classic are you running? (Help > About Quicken)

    @Boatnmaniac I'm sure the OP sees a standard split transaction. This issue has come up before … but I don't remember the resolution.

    I suspect so, too, but I'd like for them to confirm this.

    Also, I'd like for them to confirm the version they are running. I saw another thread that seems to be along the lines of the issue in this thread. I haven't heard of this type of issue for quite some time so to get 2 posts in the same time period peaked my interest. It makes me wonder if this is just one more quirky issue with R56.9.

    The version is R56.9, but this is a longer term problem. Multiple updates have passed. Quicken was no help and suggested the message board.

    When I hit split I see this

    If i hit split again I see this.
