Estimate From Last, Estimate From One Year Ago are Grayed Out
When create a new bill reminder in Quicken, you may notice that the options Estimate From Last and Estimate From 1 Year Ago are grayed out.
This is as designed when setting up a new Bill Reminder.
Quicken can use the last few Scheduled Bill Payment Reminders or use Reminders from last year to determine the variable amount to use on a Scheduled Bill Payment for a specific Payee.
Until you have recorded (entered) Scheduled Bill Reminders, Quicken has nothing to use to create the variable, so these options would not be available on a new Reminder. Once the Scheduled Bill has been recorded for the first time, these Variable options become available.
