How do I get my 401(k) contributions from my Paycheck to show up accurately in my 401(k) register? Quicken 2007 Mac

I have weekly paycheck setup. Each week I have Employee and Employer contributions. These show up in my 401(k) register but only as the exact amount of the contribution. When the share price changes on the investment nothing in the register ever changes.

There’s no accounting for loss or gain in the account. Shares and share prices are not displayed.

Comment on this forum: Also, what is going on with this horribly formatted and only simple search (no advanced search) in this forum? Mac isn’t even listed as a platform. I thought the Mint.com guy was here to prove Intuit actually knew they had Mac customers.

I don't know about the Mac version but in my windows version the 401K contributions just go into the 401K account as cash.  Then you still need to go into the 401K account and buy the shares with the cash accumulated.  Hope this helps.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
