Q2014 possible file corruption


D

David Arnstein

I have been using Quicken forever and I now have Quicken 2014 Premier.

I did a register search for category "Mort Int" with the intent to
change the category on all transactions to something else. Quicken
"find all" returned one match. When I clicked on the matching
transaction, Quicken crashed.

Like an idiot, I repeated this exercise three times.

Next, I launched Quicken and did a file verify/repair. Apart from a
few suspicious stock splits, Quicken found no errors. The "bad" Mort
Int transaction is not in a brokerage account, anyway.

Oddly enough, I was able to scroll to the "bad" transaction with my
mouse. I changed the transaction category as I wished, no problem.

Finally, I am concerned that my precious, 74 MByte Quicken file is
corrupted. Since file verify/repair did not find any issues, I would
like to try something else. Suggestions?

Note the contents of that transaction and delete it (don't use "Cut": use
"Delete"). Then try the same Find All again. If no problem, manually
re-enter the deleted transaction and try the Find All again. If no problem,
it's likely you found your corruption.
