With the usual IANAA, I have a split on each paycheck that goes to a
"savings" account for the 401k contributions.  I then reconcile the
actual purchases with my statements.  I do the same thing for my wife's
401k although her plan does not give detailed transactions, only
quarterly summaries.  So for that I set up a spreadsheet where I could
plug in all the values to get things like average purchase price, etc.,
based on the loss/gain and dividends reported.
