How to update Industry designation for a Security

Some of my securities don't reflect their commonly known Industry in the Security details (eg, BP Oil). How do I update that field, if Quicken doesn't provide it or has it wrong?

    I see that the Industry/Category is missing for BP, but it is present for most other stocks and mutual funds. This data is downloaded with the quotes and unfortunately there is no way for a user to edit or update it.

    I think your only option to get this fixed would be to contact Quicken Support.

    Problems like this have persisted for a long time in the past, but it's worth a try.

    Many of my stocks show Industry as Unknown. Quicken never updates them to show industry.

    Why was my post edited "Removed - Speculation/Innaccurate"[sp]?

    I merely and succinctly stated that I too have issues with the industry designation in Quicken Portfolio View.

    What is quicken doing about it?

    We users do not know what Quicken is doing to resolve this issue. 

    To help register the problem you can go to Help > Report a problem in Quicken.

    I too have this issue. Major companies are not catergorized or incorrectly categorized including APPL, NVDA, DIS, BRKB, etc. We need a way to assign an industry when the downloaded data is missing or inaccurate
