I made an entry for a purchase, say 100 shares of XYZ at $10.The account overview screen Quicken assigned a cost of 9.12. No other entries for this stock from any other purchase.  Why was a different cost base assigned? I have tried deleting and re-entering and got same thing. Help! Somehow Quicken is finding something else and I do not know where to look. I have used Quicken for over 10 years.
