    Could you please let us know what version and release of Quicken you are running? This is available from Help > About Quicken

    Also where in Quicken are you seeing the discrepancy? - An Investing/Portfolio view, the account's Holdings view, or someplace else?

    Sometimes a picture
    is worth a thousand words ...

    Can you please capture one or more images of the parts of your Quicken window
    showing the issue, sensitive information blacked out as necessary to protect
    your privacy but annotated to describe the situation, and attach the image(s)
    here?

    The Windows Snipping Tool (available with Windows 7 and up) can be used to
    capture a partial screen image and save it to a file.  Microsoft Paint can be used to annotate the
    image.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots

    To take a screenshot in Mac please see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201361

    Please create image files of type PNG, JPG or GIF only.

    To attach the image here, start composing your reply. At the bottom of the text
    entry window on the webpage you'll see a row of icons beginning with B I U
    S

    Click the camera icon (not the video camera icon). It will allow you to select
    and upload the captured image file from your computer. The captured image will
    be inserted at wherever the cursor is located in the text.

    Any Placeholder transactions in the investment account register?

    [Edited: Rest of my post removed. It does not appear to apply. NotACPA seems to be on the right track with his response (above)]

    You need to explain further.  Because in both of your graphics, the sum of the # of shs in the lots depicted DOES add up to the total shares held in that security in that account, 434.86 shs and 51.45 shs respectively.

    These add to 1279, not 1715.

    What is the header on that column that doesn't add.  Because it would seem to be the Gain/Loss column ... and your message refers to "Share Lots" ... non Gain/Loss.

    If fact, what's the column headers for ALL of your graphics?

    The heading is "Shares", i.e. the number of shares of that security held in the account. By the way, 1715 is the correct number.

    All of the headings are: Name, Quote/Price, Price Day/Change, Shares

    OK, now we're getting somewhere.
    Let's go back to UKR's striked out question.  Are there any placeholders?

    You can show placeholders by clicking, from the main menu, EDIT, Preferences, Investment Transactions, and then Checking "Show hidden transactions".

    They'll show up in your register as having N/A is several places

    Also, in the post where you 1st had graphics, I don't understand the difference between the 2 grapahics.  What is each of them?  Because the 2nd graphic appears to have 2 lots on 4/30/18 that entirely accounts for the difference.

    The second graphic of the 2 was from the preceding day (9/27). One of the 2 4/30 entries was a transfer from another account while the other was a purchase. They do not account for the disrepancy of 436 shares

    Have you tried Validating your Q data file?  It's a 2 step process.
    1) FILE, File Operations, Copy.  Leave all of the default settings alone, then using the Copy
    2) FILE, File Operations, Validate and Repair ... being SURE to check both "Validate File" and "Rebuild Investing Lots" before you click OK.

    How about SuperValidating?  Same process, still using the copy, but hold down CTRL and SHIFT until you see an indicator that it's SuperValidating (and not just regular validating).

    Validation did it! Thanks a lot; should have thought of it myself but in 22 years of using Quicken h, have had to validate only once before.
