Couldn't add value more than 100'000'000.00

It said that the maximum amount is 99'999'999.99. But my mortgage is 150 million in our local currency. Therefore, how can I increase the number of digits?

    You can't.  Quicken just isn't designed for so large of numbers.

    In USD, it is large. But in other weak currencies, it is not large numbers due to the exchange rate. I understand that it is technically the same for all hard and weak currencies. OK, Thanks for your time.

    AFAIK ... Please understand that Quicken is designed exclusively for the North American and Canadian markets. Therefore amounts are limited to 10 digits, including 2 decimal places.
    Changing the Currency List to accommodate international currencies that don't use fractional units (like the Yen, etc.) or allow more than 10 digits would require a major redesign of the entire Quicken program, provided, of course, that the Intel 32- or 64-bit instruction sets allow for numeric decimal operations of that length.

    How about, in your mind  and in your Q records, just dividing all amounts by 1,000?
    I'd be surprised if those low-order 4 digits were ever actually used.
    SO, your 100,000,000.00 would be recorded as 100,000.00
