How to display the dividend or share amts for dividend reinvestment transactions in reconciliations
Mark Nieberding Member ✭
When I reconcile an account with dividend reinvestment transactions, these transactions show up with zero cash amounts and do not show the dividend amount nor the shares reinvested. Is there a way to display these amount in the account reconciliation pop up window to make it easier to match and reconcile these transactions with account statements?
Afraid the answer's No. That's not available at this time.You'd have to review the number of shares received in one of these: Holdings view, Portfolio view or account register.
When downloading transactions and Quicken compares the reported holdings to what's in your file ... if there was a discrepancy, you'd get an error message.0
You might note that the basic investment account reconcile is only a cash reconciliation. Since the reinvestments are a $0 cash transaction, that is why there is limited information shown at that point.
If you are downloading from your brokerage, the Tools / Online Center offers a Compare to Portfolio button to check that share quantities in Quicken match up with what the brokerage most recently reported (an after-the-fact duplication of the comparison @UKR referenced).0
