This transaction cannot be entered...again.

  1. Default This transaction cannot be entered...again.

    My Money 2006 version is 15.0.80.513. When I opened my checking account
    this morning it went only as far as April...transactions since that date did
    not appear. Did a File, Restore from my external hard drive to bring it
    up-to-date, and I balanced the account without a problem. When I went to
    enter a transaction, though, I got the dreaded cannot-be-entered error
    message. Googled Cal Learner's last response to a query about this, which
    recommended a File Repair Level 2, but I don't see anything listed by
    level...just a request that I identify the file that I want to repair. Which
    file do I want to repair, the backup or the program file? Last time this
    happened, I did the transaction on my laptop, then uninstalled and
    reinstalled Money and restored from my backup. I hate to think that I will
    have to go this route over and over again.

    The program file. Level 2 is the default of a drop-down list during
    the process.

    Sorry to be a pest, Cal. I did the level 2 repair, naming the backup
    msmoney1.exe...but after taking that action I cannot find that file. I
    re-installed Money 2006 from the CD, and I looked to see if I had anything
    flagged as "read-only," without success. I can still use Money on my laptop
    (I had sworn to my wife that the laptop would contain no financial
    information in case of loss, but...). I'm at my wit's end.

    It should have been a *.mbf name, but you don't need to specify the
    ..mny part. Maybe you will find msmoney1.exe.mny, which you would
    probably rename as msmoney1.exe.mny.

    Or if you are just searching, search the drive for *.mbf files.

    Don't forget to empty the RecycleBin folder when done.

    You might consider setting up an encrypted drive, and put your .mny
    and .mbf files there. It is a chore to have to open the "drive" upon
    startup, but it will protect your info if the laptop is filched.
    TrueCrypt is free and powerful. I would configure it so that you do
    not Auto Dismount while you have Money open.

    Isn't *.mbf a backup file? In your message of 7-20 you told me that it was
    the program file that needed repair. I have backup files on both the desktop
    and the external drive, and have restored files without a problem...except
    for the ensuing "Cannot enter..." message.

    When I wrote "It should have been a *.mbf name, but you don't need

    Apparently, emptying the recycle bin did the required magic. I will follow
    up on your suggestion about encrypting the files on the laptop.
