    Ah, but they DO affect my register. Because, although some here are referring to scheduled reminders doing this, I am talking about scheduled transactions that are automatically entered in my register. I have my bills and paychecks set to be automatically entered 60 days in advance. And in that case I can end up showing a negative RED balance in the actual register for a few lines until the deposit line appears. Quicken is not supposed to sort that way. It's a bug. The red is supposed to alert me to an actual overdraft situation, not punk me. :-)

    Hi @pmrussell892 ,

    How your Bank works, is very important. You want to set up Quicken to match your Bank's sort order. That's the bottom line.

    Also it is prudent to maintain a cash cushion in your accounts so you don't encounter same-day overdrafts, which are a lucrative source of fees for banks.

    Hey, thanks for all the irrelevant input! I don't care how my bank works. And I know how to manage my money just fine. I want my Quicken register to behave a certain way and it does not do that. Vote this idea up - or don't.
