Problem reconciling investment accounts, cannot update trxs from cleared to reconciled status
Quicken 2016 for PC. Been using Quicken since launch, maybe 1990.
Until the latest update, I could reconcile an investment account to the statement, even if that account did not include cash. Down loaded transaction involving stock purchases and sales were stamped c for cleared; when the paper statement corresponded to that transaction one could mark them r for reconciled. When the statement omitted such a transaction, usually for date reasons, or when Quicken duplicated the transaction because of ETL difficulties, it was easy to sort out which were which: which corresponded to the paper statement, and which didn't. Now, you cannot change the c stamp, so finding the transactions that cause a difference between the share values in Quicken (usually the ones in error) and those on the statement (I have yet to see an error on a statement) has become much more difficult. You can raise an error message that says you can't reconcile it because it doesn't include cash. That is false: one reconciles inventory, receivables, accruals and all other balances, not just cash. You can and should reconcile investment accounts that don't include cash. You need to re-educate the domain person that drafted that error message.
Anyway, please restore the functionality that recognizes the difference between clearing the transaction and tying it out to the paper statement, that is, reconciling it. Please allow us to update the c flag to an R flag if we wish to.
I do hope this kind of regression is not symbolic of the future of Quicken under new management.
