  3. Enter a name that will help you recognize the transaction
  4. Complete the options: How often, Next Date to enter, Number of remaining payments
  5. Retrieve and use the memorized transactions from the list menu. or use shortcut  Control key+ T
  6. The transaction template you used to create the memorized transaction can be saved as a valid transaction, or cleared.

From this list window (control + T) you can:

  1. Permanently discontinue a memorized transaction- highlight and delete the transaction (control + D).
  2. To keep the transaction on the list but not active, highlight and edit the transaction (control + E).
  3. Change the date or the frequency by highlighting and edit the transaction (control + E).
  4. Occasionally, there is a need to change the amounts within a memorized transaction (see below). Whenever a change to the amount is made, be sure to confirm that the date of the next transaction is correct.   The date of the next entry appears on the memorized transaction list (control + T).
