I am using Quicken 2017 on Windows 10. I am in a brokerage account and am trying to sell 1,095 shares when I have 1,342 shares of the security. When I try and save the transaction, Quicken tells me I'm trying to sell more than the # of shares I have and that I only have 61 shares available. Why is this?

    One rather common circumstance is that the user has two similarly named securities - IBM and IBM Inc.  

    Another too-common finding is that they are trying the sale from the wrong account, when the security is held in multiple accounts.
