Quick-Start Guide Quicken ® Getting Started with Quicken® This Quick Start Guide provides general setup and download instructions for Quicken with a PC (Personal Computer). The versions that are supported for the Quicken download include the most recent three years of the software. Although the Quicken versions usually are similar, there are some differences in the software interface. We have addressed those issues critical for setup purposes, but this Guide does not identify every difference. Please feel free to contact our Online Service Center at 1-800-221-3636 if you need additional information during setup or while downloading. For clients who have a Macintosh computer, a download referred to as a Transactional download is available. Investment download is not available for a Macintosh computer. Please contact 1-800-221-3636 for information regarding the correct enrollment and Quicken setup for the Transactional download. Investment Download Register Setup for New Users After you have completed the enrollment form, submitted it to your Financial Advisor and received the confirmation email confirming that this process has been completed, you are ready to setup your register. The information needed is your smithbarney.com user name, smithbarney.com password and your current net cash. The net cash is the total of the cash account balance and the money funds (Bank Deposit Program or Western Asset or Dreyfus). The funds also can be identified by the unit price on the positions page in smithbarney.com which is always $1.00. 1. From the File option in the upper left of the Quicken software, click on "New," "New Quicken Account," "OK." 2. From the Quick Account Setup screen, choose "This account is held at the following institution:". Enter "Smith Barney Investment," and click "Next." 3. Choose the appropriate investment account type (usually Brokerage or IRA) for "Choose the type of account to add." Click "Next." 4. Type in a name that identifies the account for "Name this account." 5. Choose "Online" or "Yes" for "How do you want to setup your Smith Barney Investment account(s)?" Click "Next." 6. For Customer ID, enter your smithbarney.com user name. For PIN/Password, enter your smithbarney.com password, click "Next." (Password must be 6-8 characters.) 7. Enter the first 8 digits of your account number (no dash) for Account Number. Click "Next." 8. After the download has been processed, click "Done" or "Close." 9. On the Cash Balance Adjustment screen, enter the total net cash as of today, and click "Done." * * The cash transactions are itemized under the Cash portion of Quicken. Quicken also recognizes the money funds (which is part of the cash) as a position. Therefore, the total market value may be overstated. To correctly state the market value, either manually delete the transactions for the money funds (which deletes the position) or change the unit price to zero. FMA Card Register Setup for New Users Quicken requires that your FMA card be setup as a separate register. To setup your separate FMA Card register, please follow the same steps listed above. For the account number, enter the first 8 digits of the FMA account number followed by a "C" (example: 12312345C). Due to the unique features of your FMA card, you must activate your card in Quicken as an investment account with a linked cash account. Download all the data from your card transaction into the linked cash account. You may wish to hide the investment portion of this account. To do so, go to the Quicken Help menu in the software; keyword is "hiding." Please note that the setup information is held in the investment portion of the Quicken account. Hiding the account may be confusing at a later time if editing the setup information is necessary. Therefore it is an option but not recommended. Creating a Linked Cash Account for FMA Accounts and FMA Card for New Users The checking account transactions and the debit card transactions are tracked as cash in Quicken. To create a linked register under Cash Flow Center in Quicken, follow these steps for the FMA account and again for the FMA card: 1. Right-click on the account, left-click on "Edit Account." 2. Choose "Yes" for Show cash in a checking account. Click OK. 3. Prior to creating the account, Quicken requires you to backup the data file. At this point, choose the appropriate option (example: Choose "On My Computer" under "2. Where do you want to save your backup file?" In the white rectangular box, enter a folder name such as c:\Qbackup. Click "OK.") When Quicken prompts that the file is backed up successfully, click "OK." 4. A cash account will then be moved to the Cash Flow Center in Quicken for each account (FMA checking and/or FMA card). Bill Pay Register Setup for New Users This register is setup for investment download clients tht wish to upload their bill payment requests through Quicken. A separate checking account register is setup which contains the bill payment requests. This account will always have a negative balance in that the cleared bill payment transactions will download in the investment cash register. A separate 4-digit bill pay PIN is used which is sent after enrollment in a PIN mailer. 1. From the File option in the uppper left of the Quicken software, click on "New," "New Quicken Account," "OK." 2. From the Quick Account Setup screen, choose "This account is held at the following institution:". Enter "Smith Barney." Click "Next." 3. Choose "Online" for "How do you want to setup your Smith Barney account(s)?" Click "Next." 4. For Customer ID, enter your Social Security number. For PIN/Password, enter the 4-digit PIN that was sent to you in the PIN mailer. Click "Next." 5. On the Online Account Activation screen, enter a permanent 4-digit PIN. (Please retain the temporary PIN that was mailed to you. If at any time the PIN has been locked, a customer service technician at 1-800-221-3636 can reset the PIN to the original.) 6. At this time, Quicken will retrieve the bill pay checking account. Please note that the account number displayed is the account number on your FMA account checks. On the Quicken Account Setup Screen you may name the accoutns to identify them in Quicken. Click "Next." 7. The next screen confirms the account. On the Online Update Summary screen, click "Done." The register is now ready to upload bill payments. 8. For instructions to upload bill payments, please go to the Quicken Help menu in the software; keyword is "Online Payments."
