    Just for reference:
    A LOC or HELOC account should be treated as a credit card account in Quicken because you can take out money and pay it back and do so repeatedly.
    A traditional loan or mortgage, when it reaches $0.00 as balance, is considered paid off and you cannot take out more money.
    IMHO, neither LOC, HELOC or mortgage accounts should be connected to the bank for transaction downloading. Track it as a manual (offline) account using a properly defined Scheduled Reminder for recording any payments with splits for principal, interest and escrow. You'll get much better results this way, including a correctly updated account balance.
    If you want to see your LOC or HELOC in the Account Bar as Liability instead of mixed in with the Credit Card accounts, go into Edit Account Details, Display Options tab and change Account Intent from Credit to Liability.
