Why does Quicken prompt me for 1:1 Stock Splits?

Why am I getting stock splits that are 1:1? What is the point of a 1for1 stock split? I thought it might be a rounding error but as you can see in the screenshot there are also stock splits that are showing 6 decimal places.

Any ideas?

    Strange.  Never seen that.  Who is the FI? 

    If that happened to me, I would probably backup first, accept the splits, and then do a compare to online balances to see what happened, and proceed based on what it shows.

    That is not an FI issue.  That data is coming from Quicken's quote supplier.  Why?  No guesses.   

    Are those all Canadian based ETFs?

    I would use the Report a Problem path (Quicken Help) including that screen shot with as much info as possible.  It may be near impossible to remedy.  I have been getting a 1;1 split prompt for over six months that should not appear.

    I agree the data is coming from Quicken Security Data Supplier. Previously, I have accepted them and then had to go in and adjust afterwards because it messed up my share total. One theory I have is that they might be adjustments for items like Return of Capital because they seem to happen to ETFs.

    I need to make more notes on it when it happens next. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge or had seen it before.

    Thanks for the responses.
