Cool Date-Editing Tricks for Quicken 2013
Within the Quicken accounting program — and it doesn’t matter whether you’re using Quicken Basic, Quicken Premier, Quicken Home & Business or Quicken Rental Property Manager — you’ll enter dates again and again: the date you write a check, the date you record a deposit, the date you reconcile an account, the date you receive a dividend on some investment, and so on.
Fortunately, you have several very cool, extremely handy date-editing tricks you can use. Specifically, if the selection cursor is in a Date field, you can do these things:
|Press This Key||What Happens|
|+||Adds one day to the date shown.|
|–||Subtracts one day from the date shown.|
|t||Changes the date to today’s date. You can remember this
because t is the first letter in today.
|y||Changes the date to the first date in the year. Note that
y is the first letter in year.
|r||Changes the date to the last date in the year. Note that
r is the last letter in year.
|m||Changes the date to the first date in the month. Just to salve
my compulsive personality, allow me to point out that m is
the first letter in month.
|h||Changes the date to the last date in the month. Okay, last time
I’ll provide a memory tool — note that h is the
last letter in month.
