Finding Placeholders


J

In Quicken 2011 Deluxe Desktop, is there a report that will show you all
placeholders that might exist in all accounts?

If not, what is the best way to find placeholders that may have occurred
in the past?

Thanks. Jeff

Someone (you?) asked this in the Quicken Community today. I thought the
answer given there was probably just about as good as any: sort the
investment account register by Action - look for Action values of "Entry"
(those are placeholders). You should also have the Quicken preference to
"Show hidden [investment] transactions" set (that's found at Edit >
Preferences > Investment transactions).

You can see placeholders in reports; both the Banking > Transactions and
Investment > Transactions reports will display placeholder transactions.
Placeholders will appear with a "Num" value of "*Placeholder" in the Banking
Transactions report, and with an "Action" value of "*Placeholder" in the
Investment > Transactions report.

I think you'd need to export to Excel to remove all non-placeholders from
either of those reports - though you can remove many non-placeholder
transactions from the Investment Transactions report by excluding all
Actions but "Added" and "Removed".
