Quicken will not ABBV to my security list and thus I can't enter a transaction

I purchased shares of Abbot spin off AbbVie (ABBV) and Quicken finds it on line but will not add it to my security list.  I was having a data file crash and suspect this may be the reason.  This spin off took place a long time ago.

    Try doing CTRL-Y to display your securities list.  Click "Show hidden securities" at the bottom of the window.  Click the Symbol column header to sort your securities.  Is ABBV already in the list?

    Re: the file crash.  Try validating your Q data file.
    1) FILE, FIle Operations, Copy (leave all settings as the default)
    2) Using the Copy, FILE, File Operations, Validate and Repair ... being sure to check both "Validate File" and "Rebuild Securities Lots" before you click OK.
