Duplicate downloaded transactions: how can I delete them all at once

    I just installed Quicken Deluxe Home and Business 2005 on my new computer,
    and restored my data file. When I did my first download, the system received
    dozens of old transactions. In one account, 149 duplicate transactions were
    downloaded, almost all of which are marked NEW. I cannot seem to find a
    means of deleting them all at once, and deleting one at a time will take me
    a while. Query: How can I delete all the downloaded transactions??

    I don't think you can delete them before you accept them; but in
    Q2005 - for the first time in Quicken - you can select groups of
    transactions using the standard Windows selection keys and
    delete them ... at least you can do that if they are not
    investment account transactions (I can find no way to select
    multiple investment account transactions).

    After selecting the transactions, I believe you must go to

    Edit > Transactions > Delete

    to delete them.

    Alternatively, you can effectively delete downloaded
    transactions by reverting to the backup you made just before you
    downloaded them ... assuming you made such a backup.

    I'm not at that computer now, but as I recall, it was not possible to select
    more than one NEW transaction at a time, but I will check again. As for the
    prior backup, that's how the problem started. I restored the backup, and
    when I downloaded my transactions, all the old ones came up, most marked
    NEW.

    Had to delete them individually. It took some time, but it is done.

    If you have Q2005 and the transactions were *not* investment
    account transactions, you could have selected them (depending on
    where they were in your register, you may have had to select
    them "individually" ... using the CTRL key; still easier than
    deleting one by one) and deleted them as I suggested (Edit >
    Transactions > Delete). It just doesn't work for investment
    account transactions.
