Editing Investment Transactions

When I edit a Buy transaction the type changes to a Buy Bond and a .0 is added in front of the number of shares I purchased. (.14636 becomes .014636) - Using Quicken Premier for Windows - Version R32.12 - Build 27.1.32.12

    The security for the transaction -- your US Treasury ETF -- what 'security type' do you have assigned to that security in Quicken?  I am wondering if you have that as a 'Bond' if that might be a factor.  That type of security should be typed as a Stock, Mutual Fund, or other type of security; not as a Bond.

    Hello @sburt1

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to ask your question although, I apologize that you have not received a response.

    Are these transactions being downloaded and you are editing them after the fact? If so, what is the name of the financial institution? Are you able to create a new manual transaction and recreate this issue?

    The more information you can provide the better able to assist the Community will be.

    These transactions are not downloaded - they are manually entered and if I go back to edit them they have changed as described.

    Hello @sburt1

    Thank you for the response and the confirmation. I am seeing this issue, however, the additional ".0" is only displayed in the transaction dialogue box.

    The description in the register is displaying correctly for me. However, I do notice that the action is not being saved as a Bonds Bought. 

    Are you able to provide screenshots of the transactions using the Windows Snipping Tool? To learn more about posting screenshots to the Community, please take a moment to review the information available here.

    This will help me to more reliably create the issue to help get this reported.

    Thank you,

    What exactly do you need screen shots of? Transaction dialog when adding new entry, register of that entry, edit transaction dialog showing incorrect data?

    Hello @sburt1

    Thank you for the response. Yes, I would like to see the transaction dialogue before editing the transaction and then after editing the transaction. I would then like a screenshot that shows the transaction in the register after it has been edited to a bond.

    Thank you!

    *Register after selection Enter button on the Edit Transaction Screen - After selecting Enter on the Edit Transaction form (Even with Bonds Bought in the Enter Transaction field)

    Hello @sburt1

    Thank you for the response and the screenshots. It is unusual that the enter transactions screen shows the additional decimal, however, the description and action remain unchanged.

    This is what I am seeing in my Quicken as well. I have gone ahead reported this issue. I will be back with an update as soon as more information becomes available.

    Well, "Give that man a dollar!". Never even thought about that, when I added the account in I set all the types to other. They must have updated during a download and I didn't check that out. Thank you.
