Downloaded Transactions cannot be entered

Single user, QB 2019 for Mac, v18.0.5 R6

 

Problem: Cannot copy from downloaded transactions to register.

To Recreate: Download transactions from multiple banks (Amex, Chase, etc.) no problem

In the "download transactions" window, a single click on any single transaction immediately causes a new register window to pop up.  The register for the associated account is open to the last line, as if I wanted to make a new entry. But the downloaded transaction is not copied to the register.

 

Same behavior if I highlight the downloaded transaction and press "Add one".

 

Tried quit / restart. Database verified OK. Tried rebuilding database.  All had no effect.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hit the escape key to get out of the "add to register" mode.  Or quit QuickBooks and open it again.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply!  I have already tried restarting QB, as mentioned in the original post. As for opening a ticket, I'll wait a bit to see if other forum readers have any thoughts.

 

Thanks,

Interesting that no one else has encountered this problem.

 

As for contacting customer care, is there a way to open a case without making a telephone call? I'm in Europe and the support hours don't seem match my business hours.

Let me help sort you out, @boberonicus.

 

I appreciate you for sharing the troubleshooting steps you've performed so you'll be able to copy your downloaded bank transactions into your register.

 

To isolate the error you've received, let's uninstall and reinstall your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac:

    1. Go to File.
    2. Click Back up.
  2. Uninstall QuickBooks Mac Desktop.
    1. Close QuickBooks.
    2. In your desktop, click the Finder menu.
    3. Hit Go.
    4. Look for QuickBooks Desktop Mac.
    5. Select the QuickBooks icon.
    6. Move it to the Trash.
  3. Remove QuickBooks PLIST files.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Reinstall QuickBooks.

Once completed, you can try downloading your transactions again.

That's not the problem I'm having.

 

But thanks for the suggestion!
