I have version 5.8.2 of Quicken for Mac 2019.   I'm using the product in a totally manual mode, ie no online access to my brokerage accounts.  I just opened up a couple of accounts with a new broker and want to know how to Move Shares in Quicken between the old account and new account without losing the original data such as purchase date, cost, etc.

    If you moved your entire portfolio from one brokerage firm to another, you could simply rename the account to the new brokerage firm and edit the download info to reflect the new firm if they offer that service for Quicken. If they don't offer download service just turn off the download capability altogether and entry your transactions manually.

    BruceG's response is, really, the easiest way.

    Thanks for the suggestion.  This works fine for me as the integrity of the accounts remain the same.
