Why does sidebar investment account market value not match Holdings' value (which is correct)?

In one of my brokerage accounts, The total market value in the holdings detail -- which is correct -- does not match the total market value recorded in the account. A very odd glitch and I can't fix it, but I think it happened when I entered some bond transactions. However, even if I delete all those entries, it won't go away. There is something "hidden" behind the scene that is totally screwing my totals up. Off by about $50K

    No. But I found a CTRL Z thing after searching further, and it fixed it.

    When I tried that in my TEST file I got a popup saying that Quicken was recalculating the data in the account.  Apparently, regarding your account, something had earlier caused Quicken to stop calculating or to incorrectly calculate the data.  Glad it worked for you.

    Frankly, it's weird that it's not "publicized" or in a menu. You are in the account, and you hit CTRL Z and it does some sort of update to the records. Completely fixed mine.
