Vanguard Transition

Vanguard is currently transitioning its mutual fund accounts into newly created “Brokerage” accounts. I use Quicken to manage my investment portfolio.
After the transition, and I perform the “One Step Update” (in Quicken), the shares for each of the mutual funds are removed, by Vanguard; using the transaction “Remove -Shares Removed”.
Subsequently, in Quicken, it is necessary to add the new Vanguard account. On viewing the new account, the mutual funds shares are added using the “Add – Shares Added” transaction.
The problem is, that in the new account, there appears to be no cost basis of individual share, price history or performance data.
How can these issues be corrected?

    Hello @kwthere

    Thank you for contacting the Quicken Community, though I do apologize that you are experiencing this issue with your Vanguard accounts. 

    First, I suggest creating a test file and adding the Vanguard account(s) to see if it produces the same issue with certain details being excluded. It is recommended to save a backup before proceeding with troubleshooting steps in the event that you would like to return to your original starting position. Below are instructions on how to create a test file:
    1. Choose File menu > New Quicken File.

    1. Select New Quicken File.

    1. Click OK.
    2. In the File name field, enter the name of the new file, then click Save. Use a name like "Test File" to tell it apart from your main file.

    Don't use any of these characters: * ? < > | " : \ / (asterisk, question mark, left and right-angle bracket, pipe, straight quotation marks, colon, BACKSLASH, FORWARD SLASH). Also, don't add the .qdf extension; Quicken does that for you.

    1. Sign in with your Quicken ID. If you are prompted to create a Quicken ID but already have one, click Sign In under the Create Account prompt.

    1. Select to not use Mobile.
    2. Click Add Account to start adding accounts to the new file.

    After adding accounts, see if you are experiencing the same problems in this test file. 


    Please let me know how this goes, I look forward to hearing your response.
