Couple of days ago I noticed that my credit card account started to miss transactions. Basically only one transaction gets downloaded per day and all others are ignored. I tried many different things - disable / enable account, new quicken file, delete / add account - nothing helps. Called quicken support and after repeating again all the above steps they told me to see if problems clears in couple of days. Is anyone else having this issue? problem a_quicken_for_mac_other a_quicken_for_mac_other, downloading_accounts_and_transactions_missing_or_duplicate_transactions, downloading_accounts_and_transactions active 11 6 1 comment 7503661 Barclay 2017-04-26T08:19:11Z 2017-04-21T20:31:16Z Susan Wolverton Ankrum susan_wolverton_ankrum Quicken 17 for Windows recently updated.&nbsp; Since that update, when I&nbsp;first downloaded my Barclay MasterCard transactions, I had to find and delete a ton of duplicates, while many more recent transactions didn't download at all.&nbsp; Since then, only a fraction of my transactions have downloaded.&nbsp; What's up with that?&nbsp; problem downloading_accounts_and_transactions_missing_or_duplicate_transactions downloading_accounts_and_transactions_missing_or_duplicate_transactions, downloading_accounts_and_transactions, a_quicken_for_windows_2017 active 3 7 3 comment 7505958 Did Most of Quickens Problems Start When They Switched to Running on .Net Framework? 2017-04-26T07:40:54Z 2017-04-25T17:44:37Z AFToothDoc craig_7063370 Has the switch years back to Quicken running using the .Net Framework been a success or has it created more problems than it has solved?

Had issues with Q Cust Sppt earlier about online access with Q2015 not working. Could always use the Intuit ID for the web page, limited as that was. Never set up any specific password or limitation on my data file. and nothing mentioned that it might be tied to my Intuit ID. <br />Found discussion topic about signing out via the Quicken 2015 interface and signing in as a "different" user. Tried that and used the same credentials I have used for a couple of years. <br />Now, I cannot even get into my current data file!!! There is no password protection on the file and I use a password manager (not quicken vault) for my various account accesses. <br />Quicken / Intuit is becoming more and more problematic. Proving too troublesome despite any potential value Quicken may have. <br />Any ideas on how to recover / fix this would be appreciated. <br /><br />Tnx. question a_quicken_for_windows_2015 a_quicken_for_windows_2015, working_with_data_and_transactions, working_with_data_and_transactions_help_with_my_quicken_password complete 7 6 1 comment 7505391 401k Loan Modeling in Quicken 2016 2017-04-26T06:33:38Z 2017-04-24T22:26:06Z Ray Herndon ray_herndon_budda28aixrd0 Using Quicken Rental Property Manager 2015<br />Release R 12 (<br /><br /><br />I am trying to model a loan against my 401k. &nbsp;I have read other posts and have interpreted the following points about the proper logic for structuring such a loan.<br /><br /><br />Note that my goal is&nbsp;<br />A) to track the loan balance properly and B) to Deposit the sum of the principal and interest back into the 401k ledger.<br /><br />1. &nbsp;A 401k Loan is essential a loan from yourself to yourself. &nbsp;The interest and principal are deposited back into the 401k Ledger.<br /><br />2. To track the loan Quicken creates a loan as well as an equal and opposite asset. &nbsp;Since this is a loan to one's self, the asset account should be converted to a lender loan.<br /><br />I have attached the following to graphically show the simple logic of this arrangement. &nbsp;The logic may be flawed, please comment accordingly.<br /><br /><img src="" title="Image:" /><br /><br />I have the following problems implementing this arrangement.<br /><br />1. My payments are deducted directly from my paycheck. &nbsp;There is no way to split the interest and principal and assign them to the loan payment directly from the paycheck<br /><br />Undesirable solution: Have the payment go to any account as a ghost transaction that doesn't really exist. &nbsp;Then pay the loan reminder from that account. This will not track spending they way I want it to, but is a solution I will live with. &nbsp;If there is another way you can think of, I am all ears.<br /><br />2. The asset account should be equal and opposite from the loan account. &nbsp;I have them linked, but when I pay the loan the asset ledger is unaffected.<br /><br />Unknown solution: Do I need to set up a separate reminder and track the transaction several times?<br /><br />3. If I am able to get the two ledgers to match, how will the principal and interest be treated within the asset? &nbsp;Where does the interest go? &nbsp;Is the asset just kinda sorta a checking account and the interest just passes through. &nbsp;What about the principal? &nbsp;Does it deduct the value of the asset and then pass through?&nbsp;<br /><br />Please comment on if my logic is flawed or if I just suck and executing the logic with the software. problem a_quicken_for_windows_2015 a_quicken_for_windows_2015, using_planning_tools_help_with_adding_or_tracking_loans active 3 5 2 comment 7505901 Removal of pay feature when reconciling 2017-04-26T06:24:02Z 2017-04-25T16:23:57Z Bill Samuel bill_samuel_btxtvh7pcu9om Quicken in many versions always had a feature where when you clicked Done on a reconcile it asked how you wanted to pay for it.
