Online payments eady to send but there aren't any


N

nobody

A few days ago I set up two online payments with Quicken as I have
always done. Now when I try to exit Quicken it says that I have online
payments to send and asks if I want to send them. If I click YES, it
shows a list of all recent online payments, those sent and pending,
The list includes all the payments including the last two. If I click
NO, all is OK until next time I exit and then it happens again.

Any idea how to stop this cycle?

Take a look at your check register(s). Are there any that entries that
still have "SEND" in the Check Number column?

And for the English translation of my previous post:

No. The check register looks like it usually does. All pending
payments have a "bolt" next to them.

------------------------------------------------

I don't see your Quicken version/year/release anywhere.

Also, you didn't say when the new scheduled online payments would be due.

Assuming the online payments Quicken thinks are ready to send are the new
payments you entered: what happens if you select them in Manage Bill and
Income Reminders and click "Enter"?

Normally when there are payments to send, they appear in the "Bill and
Income Reminders" tab below the payment account. I take it they don't appear
there in your case.

Assuming there's no way that your account filters are preventing those
transactions from appearing in the account; I'd suggest you try to Validate
a Quicken Copy of your data to see if the online payments appear, ready to
Send, in the Validated Copy. If that fails, I'd do a super-Validate on the
Copy and check again.

If that doesn't help, I'd delete and re-enter the scheduled payments.

More proof that Quicken Bill Pay SUCKS the big wet hairy one.
Better to simply pre-authorize your payees to debit your accounts.
That way, the onus is ON THEM to do the procedure--otherwise THEY
don't get paid and they have no one to blame aside from themselves.
YOUR way, I.e. Quicken Bill Pay, results in hundreds of postings
EVERY YEAR to this newsgroup describing various problems WITH
QUICKEN BILL PAY. It's just asking for a head ache to use QUICKEN
Bill PAY. PLUS Quicken BIll Pay costs $9.95 a month. MY WAY, using
PAD's, costs NOTHING--the debit is done on the final day possible,
too.

Do you really want to start this again?

You like your way better. We get that.

2010 Deluxe, latest updates.
Also, you didn't say when the new scheduled online payments would be due.
One of them has been paid and the other is to close to cancel and
re-enter. We'll see what happens when both have been paid. Both are
one time payments.

payments you entered: what happens if you select them in Manage Bill and

Of the two, the one that has been paid shows correct info. Other
pending one-time payments don't show up there at all.

Correct.

Assuming there's no way that your account filters are preventing those
transactions from appearing in the account; I'd suggest you try to Validate
a Quicken Copy of your data to see if the online payments appear, ready to
Send, in the Validated Copy. If that fails, I'd do a super-Validate on the
Copy and check again.
If the payments are made and the problem persists, I may have to
resort to that. I assume that process is online somewhere.
If that doesn't help, I'd delete and re-enter the scheduled payments.
That's the first thing I thought to try, but it was too late.


Thanks

I just do NOT understand why anyone would PAY $9.95 EACH and EVERY
month for a service that occasionally screws up when they could do
PAD's like I do that never, in 18 years, have failed. ALWAYS on
time, ALWAYS the proper amount. But, hey, as they say, "A fool and
his/her money are soon parted".

"I just do NOT understand... "

So just admit you don't understand everything, and drop it.

Dear Sharx3335,

This is your "old" nemesis Richard.

For about a year your have been very good. The posts that you have made were
thoughtful and helpful. BUT, it seems now you have once again "fallen off
the wagon" and quit taking your meds. It's again time to clean up your act.

If you can't provide CONSTRUCTIVE assistance to a question, DON'T RESPOND.
Seems kind of simple to me.

Regarding your opinions. They are not solicited nor are they helpful. To put
it into terms that even you can understand. WE DON'T GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU
THINK. In another words, you have us confused with someone who gives a
"shit".

Time to reform again buddy.

Love,

Love,

Richard, but I AM offering constructive solutions: stay away from
Quicken Billpay--for most people this is NOT a viable solution to
anything save for Intuit's cash flow requirements. It is marketing
hype on their part--trying to create a false need in people and a
bullshit solution when most people could solve that problem cheaper
and easier, elsewhere.

You just don't get it, do you. Back to Human Nature 101...

There's a big difference between, "You're an idiot, you should do it
my way" and "this is what works for me." "And it's cheaper!"

Until then, you'll be treated just as you treat others.

As Uncal Bob says and he's "right on".

Time for YOU, Richard, to take some "Reading for Comprehension"
courses, and, don't forget to see your MD to review your meds. Your
current prescriptions Are. Not. Working.

I pay nothing. It's free to me. Your way has never made a error. What
do you that a data set with one point proves? Are you really
suggesting that your method has never screwed up on anyone, anyplace,
ever?

Who's the fool?

That's about as constructive as telling people not to drive and take
the bus to avoid traffic accidents.

It's a "false need", whatver that is, to you. Your method does not
solve everybody's problems or fit their needs. It fits your needs. Why
thsi has become a religion to you is more baffling than why people use
the bill pay.

I assume you believe this is more of your brand of "constructive
criticism".
