I want to record shares "Bought" and apply available cash from that same account to the purchase price. "Bought" shares is not reducing the cash balance used within the account when the security/ company name is already entered and selected, a duplicate name is not an option. Apply account's balance option disapears for new purchase of existing security. These are for manual entries of shares bought. Please advise. How do i apply the cash from the account used to buy securities?

    I'm having difficulty understanding your issue.  Is this for an Investment Account with a linked cash Account?

    I'm having Same issue. I've reentered the transaction many times and wont reduce the cash even though I am choosing Bought and not Boughtx. Quicken. I have no placeholder entries in this Brokerage account Windows & PC

    The N/A is an almost certain indication that you have at least one Placeholder for the same security and a later date than the transaction with the N/A.

    Go to Edit > Preferences > Investment Transactions and make sure that "Show hidden transactions" is checked. 

    The Placeholders will have an Action of Entry and a gray background even if not selected.

    see this FAQ for more info.
