Tracking Institutional Funds

Does anyone have a good way to track institutional funds in the Quicken?

I admit to not quite understanding them, but we have Pimco Total Return Instituional in one of our company retirement accounts. I know the symbol is PTTRX. But it always is one share amount, and those in our work account are always higher. I called once on this and got some lengthy explanation I did not quite understand, but bottom line is that when I update our funds in Quicken, I have to manually go in and change the price per share on that one fund.

BTW - Quicken 2010 is out, and is cheaper at Amazon then from Quicken....(at least at the time I write this). I got Quicken Premeiere for $59.95 plus free shipping..

I don't know of any better way. I track them as if they were the fund with the real symbol and then and or subtract shares every two weeks to track the retirement account value. That allows me to track daily changes close enough, but is a little more work than manually entering prices like you are.
