automatic check numbering in Quicken 2004

I have been using Quicken 2004 since Jan 04. I set it up with one
checking and one savings acct. The check numbers automatically
incremented after I input the payee info. I just set up an additional
checking acct. and for that account I get "print" instead of the check
numbers automatically incrementing in the check number column. I can
use the drop down menu to select next check number, but can't get the
numbers to automatically increment. I checked the options menu and
don't see how to see this up and I see no difference in the
specifications for this acct vs. the other two. I'm sure I'm missing
something very simple. Thanks for your help. gvg

I think this is more a function of memorized transactions that
it is an account characteristic.

If you have memorized a transaction for a payee with a check
number in it, and you are using QuickFill, then subsequent
transactions for that payee will use the "next" check number.

If you have designated a memorized transaction as "Print Check",
you will get the word "Print" in the "Num" field when you enter
a new transation for that payee (again if you have Quickfill
active).

So, I think the key is to check your memorized transactions for
the payees you are entering transactions for. (Though you can
not see whether you have memorized with a check number in the
memorized transaction list, you can pretty well deduce it).
