    Not added to the Security List?

    Not added to the Watch List? There is a new check box for that.

    Not added to an account? You must add or buy some shares first.

    What version and edition it Quicken are you running? Go to Help > About Quicken and let us know what it says there. Starter edition will probably not let you add securities.

    If that's not it,  go to Tools > Security List and try adding the Security there. Let us know what if any error message you get.

    Do make sure that the supposedly new security does not already exist in the Security List, as a hidden security.
    In the Security List, enable (click to put a checkmark) the "Show hidden securities" at the bottom of the window.
    And be sure the Security List is sorted by the Security name (click column headers to sort by column)

    This is normal. Adding a stock to the security list will never add it to an account. You must Buy or Add shares in the account.
