I was directed here from another board. One of my stocks recently split (2 for 1), and Quicken is trying to get me to accept a "remove shares" entry. I checked the brokerage, and there is no mention of removing shares. The split was recorded as a purchase ("bought") with a description "stk split XXXX shs". Quicken did have me accept an entry "stk split", and that seems to have been correct. Why the removal? There was also "cil" for the odd share I had ("cash in lieu"), so that isn't it.

Any idea why I shouldn't just delete the "remove shares" entry?
