    For me, completed options(calls and puts) do not work properly. Under
    "investment transactions" under investing tab of MS money premium
    2007, when I do the right click on current or completed stocks and
    current options( ones that I still hold), there is a link called "go
    to investment" However, when I do that to completed options( no
    position in my portfolio), there is no "go to investment" link. In
    addition, the completed options are not included in the reports
    "performance by investment type" and "performance by investment
    account." All transactions are shown in "investment transactions", but
    Ms Money seems to not recognize options one they are completed.
    Please help!

  2. In the Portfolio view, try setting

    It does not address your reports, but it should show performance
    info and let you right-click the investment to go to the investment
    info. report.

    Perhaps you could reset or Customize the "Performance by investment
    type" report to improve things. Let us know what you find out.

    Also, if you don't already have the Portfolio shortcut at the top of
    he screen, I suggest you add it. Click Shortcuts....

    I have the same problem and have posted the same question in another thread.
    Closed option positions are not shown in any performance reports and in the
    Portfolio Manager. In Portfolio Manager clicking "Show Closed Position" does
    not help. Only closed stock positions are shown. Trying Customize also did
    not help.

    I called MS Support and they said that closed option positions will not be
    shown in the reports and they are shown only in transaction report. Does not
    sound right. Any resolution to this problem would be highly appreciated. If
    this is not resolved all performance reports will be wrong for option traders.

    I tried but the problem still exists.
    I also tried to delete the whole investment account.
    Deleting the whole investment account and adding everything again fix
    the problem temporally. When I closed and restarted ms money, the
    problem came back.

    Mr Learner: I also have the same problem with options. They do not show up
    in the portfolio and they are not counted in the portfolio investment returns
    calculations. Several people have commented on this but we have not gotten a
    good explanation or a fix. The same problem occurred in Money 2006. Please
    address this issue. I have posted before and not gotten a reply. For
    investors that use options Money just doesn't work correctly. I ahve tried
    all your suggestions to no avail. Please give us a definitive answer or ask
    the programmers to give us a fix.

    The answer

    Hi everyone, I have also encountered this problem and solved it for my purposes, which is merely to enable 'reports -> portfolio value by investment account' to give me an accurate summary of stocks AND options in my accounts, on 12/31 of any given year, including any 'unrealized gains'.

    1. The account in question must be 'open', otherwise 'unrealized gain' will be not be shown in this report. If the account in question is 'closed', it is easy to reopen it for this report and then close it again if you want to. (banking -> accountlist -> sort account by --> uncheck "hide closed accounts") (right click on closed account -> check "account is open")
    2. On the day in question (12/31 of each year for my case), add a purchase of any options that are in the account at that time, where quantity=0, price=price on that day (which I get from my account statements), and I recommend put memo='fake'.
    ** At this point, the reports are correct. **
    3. Once you close MSMoney, the problem returns. Luckily, you can restore the correct behavior much more quickly this time. Go to the account in question and scroll down so you can add new transactions. Search for "fake" and Money finds all your fake transactions. For each one, do this:
    a. Copy the 'investment' name,
    b. click 'back' to see your account again
    c. click in the 'investment' box and paste the investment name, hit tab.
    d. Money asks if you want to "add the investment back". Yes please !!
