Stocks/Mutuals: my statements don't have +/- shares; how to enter?
15 May 2001 00:10:24 -0400
Been using GnuCash for only a few months now and am trying to enter
various 401(k) statements I get. One statement shows:
Fund ___Shares___ _Share_Price_ _Market_Value__
Name Last This Last This Last This
FidelityGrowth 62.3 62.4 36.2 23.3 2252.00 1454.83
(No laughing at how my retirement is going down the toilet, please)-:
Anyway: what it doesn't provide is the Number of Shares bought or
sold. This makes it painful to enter into GnuCash. I have to manually
subtract the shares This - Last then enter that (e.g. 0.1 share) into
the register, then the price/share, then I can let GnuCash calculate
Total Shares and Balance.
My statement gives me Total Shares and Balance, but GnuCash doesn't
let me enter those -- it wants to calculate them both.
How do you enter this info if you have statements like this?
Any suggestions for a less painful way to enter this info?
PS: what Transfer account would be appropriate? I just used one I
