How to track security without a ticker symbol

My 401k sold a security and purchased what they say is an identical security with lower fees. That new security is a collective investment trust without a ticker symbol. While my 401K account in Quicken shows correct transactions and balances, this new security does not show up in any reports or graphs. Is there a way to have this security show up in reports and graphs? :*

    We may track securities without a ticker symbol.

     If we're able to match the security to a holding downloaded from a financial institution, the price history should be be maintained.  Otherwise, we may update the price history ourselves.

    As to why the security isn't showing up in any reports or graphs, I suggest you verify the security is checked on the Securities tab of the Customize window for the report or graph: open the report or graph and press Alt + C.

    That was the problem. For some reason, securities are not staying 'checked' at times in reports or graphs. This happened to me several months ago and when I chatted with a Quicken technician, he had me validate my file and this fixed it. I validated again and now the security in question is staying 'checked'. I'll just have to remember to validate if this appears again. Thanks for your response.

    It is happening again today. Accounts will not stay checked. No error messages except this when I validated: "QEL: The old file was corrupt and only some of the data has been recovered." After validating, the account stays checked. Version R32.10 Build 27.1.32.10
