How do I find rejected Transactions from Quicken for Windows export file

I have noticed that when move data from Quicken for Windows to Quicken for MAC, the balance of one of my stock associated cash accounts is nearly 10% greater on the MAC than the account in the Windows Quicken, which has been balanced and agrees with the amount from my broker's web site. I use both versions on different platforms. After several hours, I was able to identify a number of transactions that were not imported. This seems to be a Known Bug without resolution. I was advised to just enter the transactions manually. Since finding them is a long process, is there a log file where the rejected transactions are individually identified? I checked a log file generated by an import, and it only indicates that all the accounts were read, without mentioning that any transactions were omitted.

    The log file generated by the import into Quicken Mac probably should note skipped transactions; I know the importer from the old Quicken Mac 2007 into Quicken Mac does so — but they're different code. Also: the process of brining data from Quicken Windows to Quicken Mac is two steps: exporting from Quicken Windows format, and then importing into Quicken Mac. It's possible if the problem you're experiencing occurs during the first step, which is actually running a heavily modified version of Quicken Windows, it may not get passed along to get logged by the Quicken Mac importer. I'm just offering guesses here...
