Why is there a disconnect with an investing account total in the register and account window which has the wrong total and the the account under the investing tab which has the correct total?  I have run validate and it is clean but did not fix the problem.  I have windows Quicken 2017 Deluxe

    You might have to track it down by security.  If the number of shares is right you might have a price dated in the future or a wrong price listed for the current date. Edit the price history to check. Or even a transaction dated in the future.

    I audited price and shares to my bank listing and they are all correct and the same.  That is how I know the account and securities data in the Investing Tab is correct.  It is the account total value in the left account window that is wrong.

    By account window I assume you mean the account summary at the side of the screen. The summary does not include any cash balance in the account

    Yes I do mean the account summary.  However, perhaps I have set mine up differently because if I subtract my cash balance in the account, the difference is exacerbated

    If you folks are referring to the Account Bar - the list of accounts typically docked on the left side of the Quicken screen - the amount shown for each account can be either current value or ending value.

    Right clicking on the Account Bar will open a context menu that will show a checkbox by the selected amount. Ensure the Account Bar is set to show the current date amount as that is what the Investing tab will default to.

    Sorry, I had it backwards. The Account Bar (thanks for the clarification, mshiggins) includes cash in the account. The Investing/Portfolio/Holdings view does not include cash, even if No Security (includes Cash) is checked in Customize.

    To clarify further, it is the total at the bottom of the Holdings view that does not include cash if you group by Security. I am running QW Premier 2017 but this has been the case for several years IIRC.

    To further complicate matters, if you have a balance in a linked checking account, that cash is included in the totals for the Banking section of Account bar, as I suppose you would expect.
