I have Quicken 2017 Premier for WIndows.  I am on the Investing > Portfolio > Value tab.  One of my accounts shows the Realized Gain/Loss value with an * denoting Placeholder Entries for missing data are used in these calculations.  How can I identify which transaction(s) is causing this issue.  I have looked at the individual securities but cannot locate a specific transaction(s) that is at fault.
