uncategorized transactions after schwab download

Since moving to Schwab, I have found several transactions that fall under uncategorized when I run and Investment Income report. However, I cannot find a field where I can assign a category.

Never had this problem before. Am I missing something?

    In investment accounts, the Category is determined by the Action. So, what Action is associated with these transactions, and what would you like it to be?

    E,G, a "_DivInc" is always going to be a Dividend. Can't be anything else.

    @steel certain investment transactions don't have a category such as Bought, Sold, Added, and Removed. These transactions will be under "Uncategorized" with a net zero balance on the Investment Income report.

    It’s odd. I’ve been using Quicken for investment transactions for 30 years. I have always been able to categorize transactions that erroneously showed as uncategorized. Now there is no category field in the transactions in question.

    The ones that you can change the category on will have the category on the "Enter Transactions" dialog:

    Note this is another instance, where I'm always fixing it (as it is entered) to get the "category" right:

    My wife's 401K administrated by Merrill Lynch is constantly a few cents off.
