    Well I note also in your Q3 pic, the date has dropped the year.

    Perhaps you need to try a more conventional date -- MM/DD/YYYY (US) or DD/MM/YYYY (more common int'l).  

    Just see if any such change has an impact.

    For what it is worth I couldn't reproduce this problem in Quicken Windows US, even with the date format of yyyy/MM/dd.

    I'm going to suggest that you might have a corrupted Q data file.  Have you tried validating your file?

    You appear to have strange and unusually long security names.

    Do you see this issue with all securities or just some of them?

    If you create a security with a simple name like XYZ Inc and enter a test transaction for that security does it work OK?

    Thanks for your suggestion

    This problem started recently ( 2-4 months)

    The size of the security name has no effect - Quicken controls size. I have short and long security names. These securities i have had for a long time
