How to edit and delete an item in the dropdown list under Check #. I've tried to choose "edit "in the dropdown list, but only a few items are displayed and none of them are the item I desire to delete, which is

I'm not sure how the item even wound up in the list in the first place. I have created some items in the dropdown list, but not that one.

It's a bit frustrating as I can usually get things figured out on my own.

    The "ee" is most likely being picked up from a relatively recent transaction. The list not only picks up pre-defined values but by default entries from recently entered transactions. I put together a quick guide on how this list now works

    Thank you dwg. Helpful information. I still couldn't find the item to delete so I did an Advance Search and entered the item in the check search area and found an entry a year ago. I then edited that entry by replacing ee with EFT (which is what it was supposed to be) and that did the trick. "ee" no longer shows up in the dropdown.

    Your information gave me another way to look at the issue. Thanks!

    Your welcome.

    Thanks for the feedback, I will extend the note and expand on the usage of recent entries.

    I seem to recall that there might be a new edit option in tools/accounts/select account? Take a peek. I’m not 100% on this and I’m sure someone will jump in if wrong.

    That is another path you can take to getting the the overall options for an account, it is the same as having the account register open and choosing the menu option Account --> Edit Account.

    With many of the options there are multiple ways of getting to the same end point.
