Error: Memorized Transaction List is Full
You may receive the following message when attempting to enter a transaction:
Memorized transaction list is full.
This error message usually indicates that Quicken is unable to write (add information) to the Quicken data file for one of the following reasons:
- The file is stored in a location other than the local hard disk
- The file is read-only
- The file is damaged
To resolve this error:
- Open the Quicken File menu by clicking File in the upper left corner of the program.
- Near the bottom of the menu, note the location of the currently open file (a checkmark will precede it). For example, X:\Quicken\MyFile indicates that MyFile is stored in the Quicken folder on Drive X.
- If the file is stored on the local hard disk (usually Drive C), proceed to step 3.
- If the file is not stored on the local hard disk:
- Choose New from the open File menu.
- Select New Quicken File, and then click OK.
- Select a location on the local hard disk from the Save in drop-down list, enter a File name, and then click OK to create a dummy file. Close any setup windows that may appear.
- From the File menu, choose Restore Backup File.
- Select the drive letter you noted in step 2, and then click OK.
- Browse to the file location you noted in step 2, and then click OK to restore it.
- After the file has been restored, click OK to open it. Proceed to the next step if the message persists.
- Right-click Start on the Microsoft® Windows® taskbar, and then choose Explore.
- Browse to the file location you noted in step 2, and then locate the data file set for the data file.
Tip: The data file set consists of four files with the file name extensions .qdf, .qsd, .qei, and .qph. In the step 2 example, the data file set would be composed of MyFile.qdf, MyFile.qsd, MyFile.qei, and MyFile.qph.
- Right-click each file in the data file set, choose Properties, and then make sure that only the Archive checkbox is selected. If necessary, clear the Read-only and Hidden checkboxes, and then click OK.
- Reopen your data file in Quicken. If the error persists, restore a backup you recently created before the message began appearing.
- Exit, and then restart Quicken. If the error persists:
- Restore an earlier backup if you have one, or
- Follow the basic troubleshooting steps to correct data file damage.
- Exit, and then restart Quicken.
