General questions about using Fund Manager that do not fit into any other forum.

Hi Mark,

I run FM exclusively off the cloud. I tried to obtain more information on default cash accounts by clicking on Help and searching. The right side of the help screen remains blank no matter what I do. An example is attached.

The question I'm seeking an answer to is this: If no default cash account is assigned to an account, what happens to the cash on a sell transaction? Are there any obvious benefits to establishing a default cash account vs not? Thanks.
Right side of help screens always remains blank.

Hi aviator,

Accessing a .chm file across the internet can be problematic. There are various security patches put out by Microsoft that block this. If you access it from a local drive instead, you should be able to open the help file. If you do a Google search for "opening .chm file across a network" you will find quite a bit. There have been registry settings you could set to turn this back on, but I'm not sure if those still work. It is best to access it off a local drive, or access the online version on our website.

To answer your question... If you don't have a default cash account, nothing happens with the cash from a sell transaction. It is as though the money is removed from the portfolio. You will have only the sell transaction, and no corresponding deposit of cash anywhere else.
