All year, I faithfully entered all of my buys & sells, and was able to produce a great looking Schedule D thanks to your software.
When my end-of-year statement arrived from Ameritrade, it listed a capital gain on a Mutual Fund that I hadn't even sold yet. They said the money was given to me in the form of approx 100 additional shares back in November. I went back and checked my statement and found they were right, I just missed it that month.
So I went into Fund Manager, and added 100 extra shares using the "Distribution" command, and "short-term" as the type. I also made sure the transaction date was set for November 2000.
I'm a newbie when it comes to funds, so here is my question.....Why doesn't it show up as a capital gain when I re-run my Capital Gains report for 2000?
