    How have you recorded that purchase in  Q?  Did you set up an Investment account (taxable or IRA) to hold that security?  Have you downloaded from Vanguard into Q?
    Also, What Q product are you running?  What BUILD of Q?  Do HELP{, About Quicken for this info.

    I assume "the investments page" is referring to to what comes up when you click the Investments tab, commonly referred to a "Portfolio View." 
    Does the investment show up when you click on the "Holdings" button in the Account itself?  If you can see the security in the Holdings view and not Portfolio View, click Options > Customize current view... > Securities and make sure Vanguard Wellington is selected.

    Unfortunately customizing the view is not available with 2015. I don't care for the new system of subscribing annually so I guess I'll keep my investments on another program.

    Before you give up on Quicken, could you please explain what you mean by "will not post on the investments page"? Is this the window titled "Account Overview" that is displayed when you are viewing the transactions for an account and you click on the Holdings button, or it it one of the views that are displayed when you select Investing then Portfolio?

    The Investing > Portfolio views can certainly be customized in Q2015. Click on Customize near the top then click on Securities to make sure your Wellington fund is included in the current view. If Wellington does not appear in the list, it may be hidden. Check the box Show (hidden secuiities) at the bottom. If that box is not present, go to Tools > Securtiy list, select the Show Hidden securities box there, and make sure Wanguard Wellington is not marked as Hidden.

    Another possibility is that the purchase date you entered for the Buy is in the future. Both the Holdings and Investing > Portfolio views default to showing your holdings as of today, so a future-dated Buy will not appear there. 

    You can either set the As of date to the purchase date or later, or correct the purchase date of the Buy.

    As mentioned above -
    WHAT exactly are you looking at and calling the "Investments Page"
    since that could mean anything depending on where and what you are viewing...

    Thank you all for your help. You got me delving deeper into the program and was able to cure the problem by clicking on the customize button on the portfolio page then clicking on securities, then securities to show in this view. clicked on vanguard wellington and voila, it now shows in the portfolio view. Also thank you UKR for the snippet tip, that is a handy tool.
