When I try to enter a transaction in my money market investment account the names of the stocks for this account do not appear in the drop down box although they are shown on the list of securities in the "Holdings" and the Security List. I am using Quicken 2016 Premier and Windows 10.

    Do you have your money market investment account set up as a Single Mutual Fund?  

    Right click on your account from the Account sidebar.  Select "Edit/delete account".  On the General tab, change Single mutual fund account to "No".  

    See if that helps.

    The Account Type is called "Brokerage" and there is no place to change Single mutual fund to "No" Thanks for your assistance.

    This isn't about the Quicken entries, but I thought you don't have securities in a money market. Isn't mm a security or fund in an investment account? Not the type of Account. Which broker or company?

    In the Quicken Security List, what security type is shown for the money market fund?

    Are you trying to input a security transaction into "Thincats"?  OR, into the linked checking account that was created by "Show Cash in a checking account"?

    ONLY cash transactions go into that checking account.  Any real security transactions go in the brokerage account (Thincats).

    Non of them were shown when I opened the list but when I clicked the "show hidden securities" box they appeared at "Money Market" and also came up when I tried to enter transactions into the account! I am not sure why they were hidden in the Securities list? Many thanks for your assistance.

    Does unhiding the security make the security visible in the transaction entry form?

    If your showing Cash that's in the brokerage account in a separate checking account ... WHY do you need the Money Market security also?  Cash would be in one or the other ... not both.

    In effect, the entire "Linked Checking Account" IS the Money Market Fund.
