edit reminders

Within the last few weeks, I have noticed a new problem with reminders. I post reminders to my checking account 30 days in advance. This helps me budget. When the transaction is downloaded, the reminder would be highlighted and I could confirm it. Now, the remainders don't get highlighted, rather I get a message 'Is this the transaction for this reminder?'. For deposits, I don't even get that. The transaction just gets added without the category information, and the reminder can't be edited. How do I fix this?

    Hello @bjgross59

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to post your issue, although I apologize that you haven't received a response.

    We will need a bit more information to be able to assist. Please take a moment to review the information here and post back with the year and version of Quicken you are currently running.

    May I also if these reminders are linked to online bills? Do you use any bill pay method in this file?

    Do you see this issue on one specific account or every account?

    The more information you can provide regarding this issue will help the Community to better understand and assist.

    Thank you,

    Hello @bjgross59

    Thank you for the response and the additional details.

     I would next recommend running the Validate & Repair tool on the data file from the File menu > File Operations > Validate & Repair option.

    In the Validate File window that opens, click the top box to "validate file" and then click OK.

    When the validation completes, a data log will open in Notepad, please let us know if any errors or issues are found/repaired, specifically regarding reminders.

    Please let me know what you find!

    This is what the data log shows (leaving out the individual records that need to be changed)
