edited September 2017 in Investing (Windows)
I just started and downloaded my 401K and the balance/value is way low cuz it doesn't have complete history I believe. I see the placeholder transactions but somehow I need to have a starting balance or something so the right number of shares and account value is there. What do I do to make that adjustment? Thanks...

    Thanks Dave - I believe I figured it out. The investment I'm talking about is only available to employees in our 401K, it is not a publically available investment. Therefore when I downloaded the transactions it had the right number of shares but no price for the fund shares. Since this is a fixed rate fund and the shares are stable at $1 each I created another "cash" account with the number of shares as the value of the account. As new transactions are downloaded I will just add another transaction to this account so it reflects the proper number of shares and the value... So I think I'm good. Thanks!

    Glad you were able to figure this out on your own! For the benefit of any others that may run into a similar problem, would you mind sharing your Quicken product and version, so I can flag this conversation appropriately?

    Thanks,
    Dave
