  2. Transactions, reports, and graphs - As many as allowed by the size of your hard drive;

  4. Trackable stocks - Up to 2,000 total;
  5. Split lines - approximately 250 total per transaction;
  6. Paycheck Line Items - 30 total line items per paycheck tracked;
  7. Dollar amount - A Quicken file cannot have an entry that is larger than 99,999,999.99. This includes number of positions (shares) as well as amount of dollars.

    I have considerable more than 2,000 securities in Quicken but I only have a couple hundred that are not hidden and even fewer that download prices.  So short answer is I'm not exactly sure.  Hopefully someone at Quicken can enlighten us.

    That phrase in that context has been around for 15 years or more - untouched, unchanged.  No one from Quicken (or Intuit) in all those years has offered an explanation though the question has been asked.  I'm not sure anyone other than Eric Dunn goes back that long.
