Share and price changes following Quicken for Mac 2007 conversion to 2018 version

I just purchased Quicken 2018 Mac version and tried to import a 2007 Mac file.  Everything seemed to work well except for one security in a retirement account.  All of the shares transacted are decreased by two digits and corresponding security prices increased by two digits.  For example, buying 197.433 shares at $10.13 became 1.9743 shares at $1013.00 after conversion.  I imported the file a few times and the same happened each time.  I tried taking off the security symbol in the original file and the same still happened.  The security in question is Vanguard Long Term Investment Grade Investor Class (VWESX).  Thanks!

    In either the old or the new software, is this security incorrectly marked as Security Type = Bond instead of Mutual Fund?

    Yes!  Indeed it was marked as bond rather than mutual fund.  I corrected the security type to mutual fund and both the shares and prices imported correctly.  Thank you!  How did you guess?

    Just a lucky guess, I guess ... ;-)
    Other people had posted similar questions before and Bonds are the only type of securities where a factor of 100 comes into play.

    That is what happens when you hang around here long enough... you get good at "guesses"   ;-)
