Reconciling Share Balances Problem
I am using Quicken Premier 2017 but this seems to be a longstanding problems. When I download investment transactions to Quicken and there is a difference in share balances between Quicken and the downloaded transactions, Quicken gives me the option to enter a placeholder transaction "for the difference." However, if I do this it actually enters a placeholder for the total number of shares, which puts the balance wildly off. I assume this is a bug but it has worked this way for so long, I'm beginning to wonder if there is another explanation. Meanwhile, if I want to correct my share balances in Quicken I need to manually calculate the difference and enter that as the placeholder. Seems quite cumbersome and not what I want. Can anyone explain or help with this?
