Help duplicate transactions

Just installed quicken
added my bank accounts (checking/savings)
setup quickenbillpay

Once it downloaded the quickenbillpay transactions, my register was off because they are duplciates of existing transactions in that checking account that are already cleared. How do I, match or fix them.

Do I need to delete the original transaction so the billpay transaction is the only one?
Delete the billpay transaction? (don't want to do that becuase i lose the notes and info)
Is there a way to associate the 2 so only one is figured into the balance?
Something else?

Start over and do it differently?

    Thank you so very much and I will check those threads out. I did an update to the quicken software (lots of updates it seems since the CD i bought was burned) and now quicken seems to not allow me to do anything with quicken bill pay. Like it has been disabled?

    Does this need to be a new thread?
  • Hello @iamtony,

    Thank you for the additional inquiry and for checking out the referenced threads for this issue!

    Yes, I would recommend starting a new thread for the second issue, as it is something entirely different that you're experiencing there.

    I hope this helps!
