Market Value of Mortgage-Based Securities is Incorrect

When I download bundled mortgage-based security transactions from my investment company (Charles Schwab) Quicken calculates incorrect values because it ignores the pool factor. Anyone know how that can be fixed?

    The same basic question was asked here
    and I gave the best answer I could given the fact that I've never owned a mortgage-backed security.
    Since there's no field to hold a "factor" to determine a market price in Quicken it seems to me you have to derive the correct number to put into the price quote field.
    Question to you: are distributions to you from the CMO/REMIC split between  principal and interest or is that all handled in the year-end reporting?

    CMO/REMIC doesn't come into play for me since these holdings are in an IRA account, so any $$ I take out is treated as regular income. Also, I realize there is no Quicken field for the pool factor, but I was hoping a question here might trigger some thought on their part to include it. Trying to derive the correct number myself is not a realistic option. We're talking about a managed investment account (PIMCO Total Return) with 40-50 mortgage bundles, all with different pool factors, and changing on a regular basis. Right now if I want to know what the investment is actually worth my only option is to ignore Quicken and log into my Schwab account.
