Certain 401k transactions (company stock and mutual funds) are not reducing my cash balance.

I am updating my 401k balance in Quicken 2016 Premier (Windows 10).  For two specific funds, entering transactions do not reduce the cash balance of the 401k account even though I am entering "Buy - Share Bought".  In the "Buy - Share Bought" window, the bottom left corner of the screen for these transactions do not have "Use cash for this transaction" section.  When these transactions are entered, a "N/A" is placed in the Cash Amt columm which would indicate that this could be a Placeholder Entry.  When I go into the Placeholder Entry window, I do not have any transactions listed.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Thanks!

    Research placeholders using this site and your Quicken help functions.

    I have this same problem. I researched and checked and there are no placeholder entries.

    Keep looking, the Placeholders might be hidden.  BUT, if you have the "same problem", you've got placeholders.

    Same exact problem.  I have no linked bank accounts to this to make a placeholder.  Is the boughtX still active?  I used it in the old quicken and it will also produce a N/A just like a placeholder.  Mine is quicken 16 R10
