Hiding Securities


D

Dan Wenz

When I try to hide my securities which I've sold off, if there's any
money left in the fund, I guess due to rounding off errors, they
continue to remain visible in the portfolio view (Q99) although I remove
the appropriate number of shares as reported by Fidelity. I can remove
the remaining $$, generally in the 4th-6th decimal place, by adding or
subtracting the appropriate remainder in the register - seems a
convoluted way to hide the cashed-out fund. Any fix? As an example, I
show a remaining number of shares in my sold-out Blue Chip Growth,
-0.000026 shares "remaining". Not hidden in Portfolio view. Back to the
register, add 0.000026 shares to the amount previously subtracted by
Fidelity's reckoning, leaving a balance of zero to the 6th decimal
place, now the fund isn't showing up in the portfolio view, finally.
Maybe there's a way to tell the program to round off to, say, 3 lpaces??

Dan,

In Q 2002, at least, under Investing Activities, Update my share balance,
you can "correct" the share balance to "0" which should delete the last
remaining odd share. I would suggest you delete the "corrections" you've
attempted so there's only one adjusting entry at the end placed there by Q
when you told it to make your share balance -0-. You can also fix you cash
balance in a similar way.

Thanks - I found, under Q99, under Features/Investing, "update share
balance", that that feature is greyed out :-( I'll try to find out how
to ungrey it.

OK, I was in the portfolio view when I replied to your reply! Under the
register view, the
Features/Investing/Update Share Balance Option is NOT greyed out.
Thanks, again!

And, *generally* the way to avoid experiencing this situation in
the first place, is to never, never let Quicken compute the
number of shares in an investment transaction.

Except: possibly those who have the problem even though they
have always entered the exact number of shares, when given the
opportunity; had the problem because the security had a stock
split where one is forced to allow Quicken to compute the number
of shares and where, I suspect, Quicken can compute a number
different than your broker will compute.
