Schwab moved assets from one account to another - how to show in Quicken

Options
Schwab recently moved all the assets from one account to a new account. Quicken now shows only a cash amount in the new account with all the assets in the old account. So I have the same account balance in the two accounts. I could sell and buy but I would lose all the old account transaction history. Other options?

    Sell and buy would be wrong , but you wouldn't lose any transaction history.

    There are viable options:
    • Continue to use the old register as the new account (remove the new register).
    • Transfer the holdings from the old register to the new register (use the Share Transferred Between Accounts wizard).
    • Move the transactions from the old register to the new register (press Ctrl + Shift + N and select Move Transactions and remove the old register).
    Personally, I would use the first option.  After you delete new register, deactivate the Online Services of the original register, and set up the Online Services of the original register to link to the new Schwab account.

    Note:  Before making any significant changes to a Quicken file, always save a backup: press Ctrl + B
