I copied a P2PKH "Unused Address" from my Armory 0.96.2 version Offline Wallet. I didn't use the "Receive Bitcoins" function to generate the receiving address.

Sent coins to this copied address (it had already been generated somehow and was sitting there in my wallet's unused addresses).

Blockchain.info show the transaction succeeded, but I cannot figure out how to get this address into my Wallet!

I am hesitant to post the address or transcation data here, until the community tells me how stupid I am and how to fix this.. Embarrassed

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

The address is already in your wallet and there is nothing that you need to do. Since your wallet is offline, it does not know that it has been used, but that doesn't really matter since you shouldn't be doing that with an offline wallet anyways. Getting addresses should be done on your online wallet.

Thank you. So the coins are safely at this address..

So is there any way to get Armory to show the transaction and display the coins at this address? Even though I self-selected an address from my Offline Wallet?
