Enter transaction when buying stock shows wrong list of securities

Hello,
Long-time user of Quicken, first time caller. Currently using Quicken Deluxe R22.29 (Canada).

I'm trying to add a transaction into an investment account - buying a stock. It's a stock that I bought before and entered into that same account before. I can't enter it today because that stock - and all the others in this same account - is missing from the drop-down list. It's like Quicken loaded the securities from a different account of mine.

Any tips? Thanks in advance.

    See if the security is "hidden".  Ctrl+Y to see the list.  Note the list shown in the buy dialog isn't restricted to the one you have in that account.

    First I would look in the ... Tools --> Security List -
    to see if it is listed, and also that it is NOT checkmarked as "hidden" -
    You can also checkmark the "show hidden" on the pull-down list....
    Lastly - what "action" did you slect - BoughtX - ?

    The Securities list is universal, across ALL of your Q investment accounts.  Unless you go to a WHOLE lot of finagling (or use "Single Mutual Fund" accounts), every security in the list can be bought in any investment account.

    ... every security in the list can be bought in any investment account.

    Except for those designated with Security Type = Market Index (which I would not consider to be a WHOLE lot of finagling).

    By "finagling", I was referring to those instances, which we've seen here, where "WFC - Joe's IRA", and "WFC - Ellen's IRA" are set up ... instead of simply setting up WFC and buying it in both accounts.
    And even then, since the list is universal, "WFC - Joe's IRA" can still be bought in Ellen's account.
