My Payees in Quicken are a mess. It seems like every transaction for the past 10 years has gotten an entry in there. So how do I clean it up? I can't delete them one at a time.
Look at your list of memorized payees by going to
Tools->Memorized Payee List
Find somebody who you know you haven't paid in a really long time, and remember them.
Close out of that window to return to the main window.
- In the Preferences Window in the tree pane click
Register->Data Entry and QuickFill
- Enter a value in
Remove memorized payees not used in the last N Monthstextbox.
- Exit Quicken, and open it up again.
When Quicken loads up again, go back into
Tools->Memorized Payee List and see if the Payee you haven't used in a long time is still there; the list should be considerably shorter.
