No problem.  Running fine here.  I updated the investment docs with your 
previously impossible suggestions. :)  I'm not happy with my explanation 
in paragraph 2... if you have any suggestions.

One thing I do not understand.  Take a look at the screenshot on the 
above web page (you may need to refresh your browser's cache).

There are 2 transactions listed as "Sell stock for profit" derived from 
the same split transaction.  No problem, I get that.  The first one 
(with the closed split in the screenshot) has a Tot Sell of 3000. 
Great, I see where that comes from.  But, what does the Tot Sell of 100 
for the second part (top line of the opened split in the screenshot) of 
the split come from?

Also, what does the "1" mean on the last line of the split?  In the 
"share price" column.
