How do I handle duplicate payee names in Address Book


If the payee name you want to enter already exists, Quicken asks if you'd like to update the address of the existing payee or, create a new record using the same payee name but with a different address. In the latter case, you must add an identifier to distinguish one payee/address combination from the other.

Quicken displays the payee name in the Address Book window with the identifier enclosed by braces (for example, Financial Institution {Credit Card}). The identifier is for tracking purposes only and won't display on printed checks or forms.

  1. From the Edit Address Book window, click the Payee tab.
  2. Enter the payee name and address.
  3. Click Update to update the address of the existing payee, or enter a text or numeric identifier.
  4. Click Add.
