Dividend error in Mac Q2007 to Mac Q Deluxe 2020 conversion

:/ Recently made above conversion. Mostly went OK; some weirdness in initial entries for some brokerage accounts, but these were correctable to within a $ or so. However, one account has major problem I couldn't resolve. One stock account would automatically transfer dividend earnings each quarter to a money market account at the same company. This was easy to do manually in Q2007 (I never used auto updating). These transfers were lost in the conversion. In the new Q Deluxe file, the money market account has the correct amount; each transferred amount is shown as a Buy with the money coming from ??, i.e., outside of Quicken? In the stock account, the stock holdings are accurate, but each of the previous cash transfers shows as a withdrawal that reduces the value of the holding, with no sense of where this cash might be going. It is possible I might be able to correct these manually, but there are 20 years worth (~80) such transactions! Any ideas?

    Hello @S_Lee

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to report this issue, although I apologize that you have not received a response.

    The Quicken Subscription version does not support linked accounts nor does it support BoughtX/SellX transactions where the money is used from a different account to complete the transaction.

    To resolve this issue, you will need to change the cash portion of these transactions to a Payment/Deposit.

    You may also consider adding one large adjustment to the account if you are needing to correct a balance discrepancy.

    Moving forward, if you are using money from a linked account you will need to create two transactions, one to transfer the funds (Payment/Deposit) and a second for the Buy/Sell respectively. 

    If you have not done so already, you may consider reviewing a previous discussion
