Quicken 2012 does not Auto-Memorize Payees without an Assigned Category


Quicken 2012 will not automatically memorize a payee if a category is not assigned to the transaction. 

This is done to accommodate repeated use of a payee without requiring you to change the category on future transactions, preventing the automatic memorization of a payee with an undesired category.

To memorize a payee without a category

  • Right-click the transaction and choose Memorize Payee...
  • Highlight the line item you would like the payee memorized, then hold down Ctrl+M on your keyboard
  • Highlight the line item you would like the payee memorized, then choose Edit menu > Transaction > Memorize Payee...
