I switched over from Quicken for Windows to Quicken for the Mac 2017. Now when I download my shares of Certificate of Deposit interest to automatically has a share value of $100 instead of $1. There is no way to change this that I can find. The brokerage account is through USAA. The value of my CDs are off a decimal. I wish they were worth so much.

    How about a 100 to 1 split?

    Thank you for replying. I'd have to do it each time I got interest on a CD. I did try it for fun, but it didn't seem to work. I could have done it wrong.

    If I understand correctly, the CD is held as a security and should have a contact price of $1 per share?

    How about this: Open the Securities Window, double click the CD in the list, then click on Price History. Click on any price entry, the menu Edit > Select All, then Delete to clear out all the old price history. Now enter a manual price entry of $1 with a date at the beginning of your ownership period. Finally, click the Options button at the bottom and uncheck Download Quotes For This Security so it doesn't get changed when you update online.

    Maybe it would help if you explained a bit more ... and provided some examples/numbers.

    You're right. It probably wasn't a good explanation. Thanks for trying to help, though.
