"your quicken account and your brokerage account are in agreement"

I am using Premier 2016 R 8 (25.1.8.5). I have several investment accounts with the same brokerage that download perfectly. However, one account always displays this message after downloading and accepting the transactions, "your quicken account and your brokerage account are in agreement". None of the other accounts display this message. I assume this is harmless, but, still, am curious as to why this appears for only one account. Can anyone tell me why?

    Check the Online Services tab of the Account Details screen for each account. You can access Account Details by right clicking on the account in the Account Bar and clicking Edit/Delete Account in the context menu.



    I think you will find the one account is set to compare portfolio after download.

    Did the accessibility of that 'Compare to Portfolio' setting change recently?  In QW2014, I believe you can only see and set that setting through the Online Center / Options selection.

    I was going from memory. I recall the setting could be individually set for each account and thought it was in Account Details. I won't be able to confirm this until this evening. Perhaps one of the other SUs using QW2016 can confirm/refute?

    Folks, I found the following in the Quicken Help once you told me what to look for. Clicking the appropriate button performs the task immediately. However, there is no setting there that turns on or off the performance of this task for every account download.
    Compare my broker's downloaded holdings to my Quicken portfolio

    Every time you download and accept transactions from your
    brokerage, Quicken checks for accuracy. Use the Compare to Portfolio window to
    check for discrepancies, and then to enter
    an adjustment
    if your Quicken portfolio and your brokerage's online holdings
    records don't agree.

    1. If you haven't already done so, download
      the latest account information
      and accept
      it into your investment account transaction list
      .
    2. If Quicken doesn't prompt you to compare your portfolio, choose Tools menu > Online Center.
    3. In the Online Center's Financial Institution drop-down list, select the
      appropriate brokerage or financial institution.
    4. On the Holdings tab, select the appropriate account at this financial
      institution from the account list.
    5. To see all of your holdings, select All in the
      Security Type list.
    6. Click the Compare to Portfolio button.
      • If there is no discrepancy between your Quicken portfolio holdings and your
        broker's holdings information, Quicken displays a message that they are in
        agreement.
      • If there is a discrepancy, Quicken displays the Adjust holdings amount
        dialog. Use this dialog to enter
        any necessary adjustments
        .

        dialog. Use this dialog to enter
        any necessary adjustments
        .
    In the upper right of the Online center is an Options selection.  There you can make the setting to apply the compare to portfolio after every download -- for that selected financial institution.  You need to repeat the setting for each applicable institution.

    Not there. All that appear are: "Web Connect Preferences" & "Show payment date information dialogs". Neither seems relevant and the second is greyed out and cannot be selected or deselected.

    So not like this:

    The settings location in Q16 for the "Compare" option changed fairly recently. It is now in Edit>Preferences>Register>downloaded transactions; Compare account portfolio after download>Edit Settings

    Humm. So the Help topic has not been updated to match the new location.
