investment income not showing up on P&L

I created a new investment account. When I enter dividends received they don't show up on my P&L. All the older investment accounts report dividends correctly. I even copied an old transaction to the new investment account and updated it for the correct specifics. No dice. My current earnings disagree with my P&L by the aggregated amount of dividends earned from the new investment.
A related problem is that another mutual fund returned some of our investment by means of a check. I selected the RtrnCapX option. Once again, current earnings disagree with the P&L to the extent of the returned capital.
It appears that these transactions are not linked within my P&L report for some reason. I can't distribute my financial statements until this is fixed. Help!

    I assume your P&L report is based on one of the standard Quicken reports. Click on the gear icon to customize the report and make sure the new investment account is selected to be included in the report.

    Thanks for such a simple fix! I went into the P&L and selected all Accounts and all Categories and that addressed the problem. For some reason "all" was not set as the default.
    It's like checking the plug when the computer won't turn on. Wish I had thought of it myself. I really appreciate your help, Jim.
