How to post a Mutual Fund merger with price history

jl747 SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
Schwab posted a Mutual Fund stock merger on 3/1.
When I went and did the OSU the info downloaded into Quicken showed as
Deposits for both transactions.
The Fund went from Y to A.
They do have different CUSIP ID's

When I went in and tried to fix it the Price History did not
get transferred to the new fund.
Did a Shares Removed and Share Added.

How do I get the Price History to transfer new Fund.
Note the Fund is a Tax Free and use Average Cost.
Not sure if renaming will do the trick or not.

Note: Can not find my old notes on this procedure.
Thanks in advance.

    You say you are using average cost. That raises a flag for me. If you have not sold any shares in this account, I think you will be fine. 
    If you have sold shares, you may find a difference (even after considering the relative share price differential of the two classes).  If that is important to you, look at your data very carefully.

    I luckily I had made several backups.
    1 - I did the Mutual Fund Conversion with the Average Cost checked.
    It produced the wrong cost basis by about twice what it should have been.
    2 - I then unchecked the Average Cost and ran it again.
    Every think looked good.
    Compared it with my Brokerage account numbers and it matched.
    I then put the check mark back.
    One thing I did not mention was this was in a Traditional IRA Account.
