Another DB corruption question

I am having another problem with corruption. I have run validate and super validate and in
both cases, even after multiple validations, it still reports that some transactions were

I would like to fix one corruption that I can find where a stock purchase from an ESPP
account reports the cash amount as N/A even though there is a valid amount, This results
in the cash balance being off by the amount of the purchase. I have tried deleting and
recreating the purchase multiple times.  In each case the transaction lists the cash
amount as N/A.

Any suggestions? I am running Quicken 2011 Deluxe with all updates.

    The only thing I can suggest is to create a new account, transfer the existing securities to the new account.

    The most common cause of a Cash Amt of "N/A" is a "placeholder" for that security (not corruption).

    To see if there is placeholder affecting the security in that account:

    Edit | Prefrences | Investment transactions

    Check the box to "Show hidden transactions".

    Placeholders have an "Action: value of "Entry".

    See Quicken Help for "placeholder", for more fundamentals. Seach this communuity for more info about dealing with placeholders.
