I have entered into Quicken a cash distribution as a return of capital, but it does not show

I have received and entered into Quicken a stock cash distribution as a return of capital, but it does not show up in Budget or Investment reports under Return of Capital (which is a subcategory of Miscellaneous Cash Flow). Any suggestions as to how to make the reports pick up the return of capital?

    Budget -- I can't comment on
    Investment Reports -- Which ones, specifically?  By design it should appear in some (Investment Transactions), but not in all cases of Investment Performance (for example).

    Are you using the Mac version by any chance? 
    The reason I ask is that in the Windows version you enter a return of capital using a RtrnCap "action" and unless you've customized an Investment Report to specifically exclude that action it should show up.
    You also mention that return of capital "is a subcategory of Miscellaneous Cash Flow" and, again, unless you've done sort of customization that you haven't explained I'm not quite sure how you'd accomplish that in the Windows version.  A return of capital isn't a "Category" in the usual sense of that word in Quicken - an "income" or "expense." 
  • I am using a PC. Return of Capital does show up as a subcategory of Miscellaneous Cash Flow in my category list.

    How would you enter a Return of Capital from an equity?

    With a RtrnCap transaction. Enter Transaction button, action = Return of Capital. Or in the transaction list, action field = RtrnCap.
