Entering Adjustments to Match Broker's Information

  1. If there is a discrepancy found during the Compare to Portfolio process, Quicken displays the Adjust holdings amount dialog. The Adjust holdings amount dialog lists each security in this account for which there is a discrepancy between your Quicken holdings and your broker's holdings information.

  2. Quicken will add placeholder entries to your transaction list to resolve the discrepancy for each checked security.

    • Click to add or remove check marks as necessary, and click Accept if you want Quicken to resolve the discrepancy for some or all of the listed securities.

      Quicken will add placeholder entries for checked securities only. If all the listed securities are checked, then Quicken will add placeholders for all of them.

    • Click Cancel if you do not want Quicken to resolve the discrepancy for any of the listed securities.

      No placeholder entries will be added.

  3. Once you click Accept, and depending on how you accessed the Adjust holdings amount dialog, either the Summary tab or the Transactions tab of your investment account will open. At this point, your portfolio's holdings information will be correct, but your cost basis and performance reporting will not be entirely accurate.

    If you need complete cost basis and accurate performance tracking, use the transaction list (Transactions tab) or the holdings snapshot (Summary tab) to resolve the placeholder entries that were created as a result of Step 2.

    You do not, however, need to resolve the placeholder entries immediately; you can do so at a later date. Just be aware of the limitations on accurate cost basis and reporting while the placeholder entries are present.
