quicken says a security name can have 30 characters. Why does it only look at he first 10 characters when "Matching Securities"?

I trade options at schwab, the first 10 characters of their option names do not include expiration date so whenever one trades an option on the same underlying security quicken thinks its the same as the last one traded on the security list and tries to force you to accept that as the matched security.

I bo[ugh]t my first computer in 1980. It and my current ones do a better job of reading than I do. Dealing with issues like this is exactly why I own a computer. Why can't quicken let my computer do the job it was designed to do and not waste my time trying to figure out whether a security already exists on my computer???
