    Hello Topshape,

    In regards to Quicken for Mac, the only portfolio option would be in reference to a brokerage account.

    Can you provide some more information on what you are needing?

    What actions are you looking to be able to do?

    Please let us know!

    I wish I could do the same thing I was doing with Quicken 2007. Here is an image that I hope you will see.

    I want to be able to build my portfolio with all the shares of companies that I own.

    Hello Topshape,

    Thank you for including a screenshot!

    The new version of Quicken has a portfolio view. When selecting 'Investing' this will include all of the information for all brokerage accounts.

    The portfolio view pulls this information in from the transactions on the accounts so information can't be directly added to this screen.



    I would see if this will show you what you need.

    I can not have the same configuration as you.

    Thank you for including the screenshot.

    The first step would be to add an investment account.

    To add an account click on the + by the word accounts then choose brokerage.

    You can either download transactions from the bank or enter them manually.

    To download transactions search for the name of the financial institution and sign in.

    To add a manual account, select 'Option' on the bank list and choose to enter transactions manually.



    The portfolio view will be empty until there is a brokerage account with transactions entered.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a way to add securities that are held without tracking them in an account.

    OK, now how to enter one at a time all actions (stock) in order to follow up. Example: how to enter
    APPLE INC (AAPL) with market value and purchase value. Thank you.

    Hello Topshape,

    You will want to go to the 'Transactions' tab on top of the graph.

    One option, which is what I do. Is to enter 'Add Shares' Transactions for each holding.



    To add a new transaction, go to the + at the bottom.

    Change the type to add shares and then fill out the transaction, i.e. the security, total cost.

    The total cost would be the cost for all of the shares that you are currently holding and then Quicken calculates the cost per share.

    Can't you or didn't you use the same data file as you had before?  Are you starting over with a new file?  You might be able to open your existing file or convert it.  You said you had Quicken 2007.  Windows or Mac?  I don't know Mac.

    Yes I used Quicken 2007, but I can not import the data because they are corrupted. I have to start again. Thanks for your advice.

    @Topshape are you saying that you cannot open the QM2007 data file at all or is it that only the investment data is corrupted or are you getting some kind of error when trying to import the QM2007 data?

    Not wanting to give false hope but there are possible fixes to some of these situations.

    I am very touched by your interest in trying to help me in this situation. I do not know what happened, but I was working with only one security copy in iCloud. I changed my ID at Apple, and everything corrupted my data Quicken 2007. So I have to start from scratch with Quicken 2017. For some time also, Quicken 2007 told me he could not make backup by finishing the session. I thank you for your eagerness and ask you to accept my most distinguished greetings. Thank you.

    Looks like you have multiple issues going on. What version of macOS are you using?

    Because of the version of macOS you are using, it is a known issue that the built-in automatic backup in QM2007 does not work if the data is stored on the any drive that has the new APFS drive format (which the main drive is automatically converted to). The simple solution would be to turn off automatic backups. Of course, any backups created would be corrupt but this does not affect the main/original data file.

    That said, ANY version of Quicken is not compatible with iCloud backups. Saving your Quicken data file in a folder backed up by iCloud (e.g. the Documents folder is backed up by default) can eventually cause the main/original data file to get corrupted. So it is important to save the data file elsewhere or turn off iCloud backup completely or at least of the folder in which the Quicken data file is saved.

    If your main data file is corrupted such that you can no longer open it, then you have to resort to another backup, either an older valid Quicken backup file or some other backup, such as, Time Machine. So, if you no longer have access to a valid QM2007 data file, be sure to protect any new Quicken data file too.

    Hello Topshape,

    To create a new security, go to Window > Securities.



    You will then select the + in the bottom left-hand corner this will open the new security screen below.

    You can then enter the name of the security.


    You will then want to go to the Price History Tab and chose Options and then Rebuild History to download the quotes for the security.


    Once this is complete, you will be able to select this security when creating a transaction.

    Hope this helps!

    How to find the same things in quicken 2017 as Quicken 2007?
  • Quicken_Tyka

    Hello Topshape,

    In the 2019 version action is called 'Type' this can be found when creating a new transaction. Unfortunately, the 2019 version doesn't have all of the options that the 2007 version does just yet.




    By "Today's Market Price" do you mean the market value?  Or are the current price of specific stock?
