QWin 2016: How to add an Annuity account purchased with funds from other investment accounts in Quic

I am using Quicken for Windows 2016. I have 5 investment accounts already setup in Quicken that I have had for years. These are setup so I can download the returns on these investments. I recently purchased an annuity with some of the funds in each of those accounts. How do I add the new annuity to Quicken using the funds from the other accounts. I need to know what type of account to use, and I have not found a way to transfer the funds to the new account.

    If you are downloading transactions on the old accounts, you should see Withdraw transactions where the cash left those accounts. Change each Withdraw to a Cash Transferred Out of Account and select the new annuity account as the destination.

    Thanks for the quick response. Could you also tell me what type of account I should use to create the new account? Would that be a brokerage account, or IRA etc? I would assume I leave the initial balance 0 so I can then transfer in the money?

    Usually it would be a brokerage account.

    Yes, set the initial balance to zero. The transfers will bring in the cash, then you buy the annuity with the cash

    For my annuity, I use a Brokerage account with the setting 'Tax Deferred' checked.
