Quicken for Windows
Quicken is not downloading my Vanguard accounts correctly
edited May 2021
I have tried to delete accounts and reinstall; I have tried rebooting machine and rebooting Quicken. Several of the accounts are correct, but one is massively incorrect. How can this be fixed?

Thanks JV. I am running the current Windows edition, 32.12. The problem emerged several days ago when I finally decided to correct what where invalid numbers for my and my husband's Vanguard IRAs in my quicken. I deleted the accounts and reinstalled them, connecting to Vanguard. His account is now correct. I am administering his account, 3 529 accounts (not being refreshed properly) and my IRA and my brokerage account. It had seemed to me that some were roughly correct, but now Quicken is saying my account is bigger than all the others combined and has erroneous holdings.
There are long sets of comments out on the web (Bogleheads and others) regarding problems between Vanguard and Quicken. I can use Vanguard to manage the details of the investments, but I expect a correct valuation of my investments in Quicken so I can see my net worth and make overall decisions from Quicken. Thanks for your helping me sort this out.
I manage a number of Vanguard accounts. Several of them (my husband's IRA and the grandkids 529s) download correctly. But my accounts are getting a crazy number. I just want the total account balance to be correct. How do I get this to work??? It was fine for many years and has gone crazy in the last several months. Thanks for your help!
I provided the information you requested and NO ONE HAS HELPED ME!
