Using Quicken 2006 Premier and have been using quicken since 1998.
The totals of my investing accounts, investing center total, investment
account activity, and asset allocation report agree to the penny
The totals of Portfolio Value and Net Woth Reports are different when
totaling my investment accounts. Some accounts equal but 5 do not
and looking at history of each etc doesn't tell me what is wrong.
Anyone else experienced the above? Any Ideas? Thanks in advance
Different from each other, and/or different from the "investment
account activity" or the "asset allocation report"?
Ultimately the history should tell you what's wrong, but maybe
you need to help it along.
For starters, you have to be certain each report covers the same
time period ("Include all dates" is not the same as "Earliest to
date", for example), and has the same remaining Customizations
(Portfolio Value must include all securities, security types,
and investment goals and Net Worth should include "unrealized
gains", for example).
Investment account values are comprised of number of shares and
share price (plus cash, if any). Once you have accounted for
the Customizations and all the cash, if you still have
differences, you have to have some difference in number of
shares and/or share price.
You can have the Net Worth report display each security in each
account (customize to show "Account detail:). Then you can
compare the value of each security in the Net Worth report with
each security in the Portfolio Value report. Once you have
identified which securities are involved, you run an Investment
transaction report for each which should help account for the
what is causing the difference. If necessary, "Export" the
report to Excel where you can get share subtotals.
