    Well there might be a maxium number of shares or dollars Quicken can handle.  I forget what it is.  Maybe more than 6 digits.  So try splitting your Remove Shares transaction into 2 Remove Shares transactions.

    After much hair loss (from tearing at it), I found a simple "fix".  I was seeing this on a buy of an existing security.  I went to the previous sell, changed from FIFO to LIFO, entered, then went back and reversed it.  Presto, no more error message.  (Don't ask, Quicken has a lot of these old bugs.)

    (Note: I also entered this comment as an answer on a more recent report of a similar problem.)
