Can I have multi-financial institutions within one account in Quicken

Can I have several different banks and financial institutions within one Quicken account, for example, Bank 1 with 2 checking and a savings account, Bank 2 with checking, saving and credit cards and Brokerage account with several accounts? How does the transaction download and reconcile work with the different institutions?

    Yes.  An association is established between the account information obtained from a financial institution and a register in Quicken.  If you haven't already, you may want to review:

    You answered my secondary question, but not the primary question about having multi-unrelated financial institutions within one Quicken account.

    I am currently using different Quicken accounts for each financial institution, but it would be convenient to have only one quicken account.

    I have 7 different Financial Institutions within my primary Q data file.
    You might be  confusing Account with FILE.  One file  can,  and usually does,  support  MANY different accounts.
    And many of those Financial Institutions have as many as  3  or 4 accounts that  I download into Q.
