How do I delete or edit a memorized transaction?

Here is a work around from an older thread, however if you did not see the popup on your first attempt to re memorize the transaction go to quickbooks>preferences>data entry and reset one time messages before you try anything else.


Try writing a check to the same credit card company you used for the CC Refund transaction (for example the transaction name might be American Express).  You don’t have to enter anything else.  Then memorize the check.  QB will say that transaction name is already on the list and asks if you want to replace it.  Click replace.  The transaction type should now be changed to “Check”.  If so, you can now delete the transaction.  It’s a goofy method, but it worked for my purposes.

How do I delete or edit a memorized transaction?

if you want to edit it, open the transaction and make the changes.  then go to Edit > Memorize Transaction and QB will ask if you want to create a new one or change the old one.

If this answers your question please recommend it.

OK I did that but QB never asked if I wanted to create new or change the old.  Now I have two memorized transactions and I cannot delete either one of them.

How do I delete or edit a memorized transaction?

Thanks for joining in on the thread, cuttingedgetraining.

 

You still need to right-click on the memorized transaction you want to delete. Thus, giving you the Delete Memorized Transaction option to delete it. You can check out the screenshot below for a clearer view.

 

Let me know if you need more help with this.

How do I delete or edit a memorized transaction?

Hello there, @lsimon.

 

Thank you for joining in the Community. I'd be happy to help and walk you through in editing the amount of a memorized transaction. 

 

To save the changes, you need to replace the transaction.

 

Here's how:

  1. Choose Lists.
  2. Select Memorized Transactions
  3. Double-click the transaction.
  4. Change the amount.
  5. Click Memorize.
  6. On the pop-up message, select Replace.

Make sure not to save and close the transaction until you're ready to post it. 

 

I'm adding this article for future reference: QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2019 User’s Guide.

 

Also, if you need to reach out for more help, our phone agents will be able to help you get to a resolution quickly.

 

Here's how: 

  1. Go to https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact.
  2. At the top right, select your QuickBooks version.
  3. Select a topic.
  4. Click on the Get Phone Number button.

This will guide you update the amount of the memorized transaction.

 

I'm just a post away if you should have any questions about memorized transactions. I'll be happy to help you out.

How do I delete or edit a memorized transaction?

I cannot find any actual answer to this question of how to change the amount of a memorized transaction.  Everyone states, double click and change but the problem is there is not place for the amount when editing a memorized transaction.  If I change a past transaction it does not save in the memorized list.  The only way I have figured out how to do this is either on the day its supposed to post or post a future one, or delete old and create new.  If someone has an actual step by step with images of what they claim is the answer I would love to see it.  This is for Mac 2016.


Thanks

Thanks for visiting us, amgloans.

 

I understand that we also need to update something on our company data.

 

Any changes from the old transactions won't reflect on your existing memorized transactions. You'll want to continue doing your workarounds while we're unable to edit its amount.

 

I'll also send feedback about this to our developers to have an option to edit the amount of all memorized transactions.

 

Keep on posting if you need more help. I'll be here!
