How to get 401k to reconcile properly

I have linked my Schwab 401k to Quicken, but it only syncs the biweekly share purchases, not the credits that come in from my paycheck for the purchases. This makes my balances get off every time. Is there any way to fix this?

    HI @scale,

    The "other half" of the transaction - as you say "the credits that come in from my paycheck for the purchases" need to be entered as part of your paycheck transaction.  Each payroll/paycheck transaction that you record in Quicken should have those 401k withholdings going into your 401k account.

    Let me know if you have any followups.
