: : I'm trying to display and report FP Yields-which I understand to be returns as typically reported-including the reinvesment of distributions.
: : At the moment I get different results between graph displays / Fund Performance Yield Reports and a Custom Report displaying FP Yields.
: : I think my problem is I am unable from the toolbar to change the Yield preference from ROI to FP-Reinvested. No matter how many times I try to change it, it still comes up ROI. I did get it to change once and immediately saved the portfolio - but the next time I loaded FM it was back to ROI ???
: : What do I need to do?? Thanks for any help
: Hello Jim,
: It should work just as you're describing. Change the yield type
: for above the graphs under the "Yields" menu. Then, use "File/Save Portfolio"
: to memorize this preference in your portfolio. The next time you open this
: portfolio is will restore your yield preference.
: Please give this another try, saving the yield preference. If you still
: aren't successful, you can e-mail us the portfolio, and we can try to
: reproduce this.
By trial and error, I discovered I could change the yield preference from ROI to FP-Reinvested by resetting from ROI to FP-distributed first and then to FP-reinvested. Multiple attempts would not reset preference directly from ROI to FP-Reinvested. OK, once I finally got the preference to FP-Reinvested I immediately saved the portfolio. Then I exited FM, and reloaded FM, Yield preference for the portfolio is back to ROI ??? Could my software be contaminated somehow. Is Version 5.2.307 OK ???
