Register Holdings do not agree to Downloaded Holdings

On several accounts, after downloading transactions I get a a message that the register holdings do not agree to the downloaded holdings.  Quicken is not uniformly generating placeholder entries to correct the discrepancies.  I do not much care that the cost bases, individual transactions, etc. may be off but I would like the current balance shown to be correct.  Is there a way to fix this so Quicken is showing the correct current balance?

    In QWin 2019, when you get the message after downloading that the balances don't match there should be an option to tell Quicken to create placeholders. This will force the balances to match but as you note Quicken's cost basis information will be incomplete.

    Yes, but as I mentioned, this feature does not seem to work.  Quicken is not always providing placeholders and so the accounts do not reconcile.  Is there a way to force adding placeholders?
