In Portfolio view, "Day Gain/Loss", "Totals" does not add up at the bottom of the column. Is there a "hidden account" or something that is being included that I do not know about??

    Thank you for responding so quickly.

    Quicken Premier for Windows, 2020
    Version R31.6, Build

    The discrepancy changes daily, since it is the "Day Gain/Loss" column of the Investment Portfolio. I have attached a 3 screenshots of the page: one with the selections (Portfolio view, Value in "Show" window, Accounts in "Group by:" window), one with the amounts that add up to $900.79, and one of the "Totals" ($1250.62) at the bottom of the page.
    You will note that there are 6 investment account amounts (IRA's etc.), two blanks, and two "0.00" in the second shot (column).
    The blanks are next to "Indexes" and "Watch List", and the two with zeros are cash accounts with no positions other than cash.
    Could the latter 4 be screwing up the total somehow?

    Hello @NHBusdriver

    Thank you for the response and the additional details.

     I would next recommend running the Validate & Repair tool on the original data file from the File menu > File Operations > Validate & Repair option.

    In the Validate File window that opens, click the top box to "validate file" and then click OK.

    When the validation completes, a data log will open in Notepad, please let us know if any errors or issues are found/repaired, and when ready close and re-open Quicken.

    Please let us know what you find!
