Unique Acct #s at Vanguard for Quicken Download

There was a post here about changing account numbers at Vanguard so that the number for each fund was different. This lets you download data for Quicken so that data from each fund goes into a different account (otherwise it lumps all funds into one account).

I just asked Vanguard for this, and the representative was skeptical (he's going to call me back).

I searched for that post, but can't find it. Can someone point me to it, or confirm that they had this set up? Thanks.

I don't recall such a post (haven't been reading much, though), and I don't use Quicken, but on my Vanguard statements and online each fund is treated as a separate account with my main account number -dash- fund number. (12345678-0040 or similar)

Yeah, Vanguard does that, but Quicken only looks at the account number.

It's weird, because I know I saw a post about this, but all my searching has turned up nothing.

In any case, the Vanguard rep called back to say it was possible to change the account numbers, but thought there might be a way to handle it in Quicken. I'll experiment a little more, then change the numbers if I have to.

There really isn't a way to do this in quicken. I asked Vanguard to change it so all of my 401(k), IRA, and taxable accounts share account numbers (one for 401(k), one for IRA,etc) they changed them without complaint or issue. it took only 2 days.

Good luck with "One step downloads" and Quicken if you use Vanguard. The shared account numbers have caused me soooooooooooo much grief trying to download tranactions.

I have managed to do a "Web" down load from Vanguard's site (to my Quicken), but still have to download one or two ccounts at a time...

Don't give up on the quicken download. I struggled with it for so long, now I have it set up so that at 4:00am every day my checking account, credit car, vanguard taxable, IRA, 401(K) and my DFA funds at schwab all update automatically.

That way when I first get up and get my coffee, I can see all of my new transactions. IT took a while to get set up, now it all just works.
