New File

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

Is it possible to set up a new file at the Master Portfolio Level. Can one save one of the portfolios as Portolio A, and save another as Portfolio B which would be 2 separate "Master Portfolios." Would the data file be kept separately? Thanks

Hi LungDoc,

Yes, you can create as many different *.mm4 portfolio files as you want. See "File / Save Portfolio As...". However, this is not the recommended or usually the best way to use portfolios. It usually works better to just have a single *.mm4 file, and use sub-portfolios. In your example, you can create a Portfolio A and Portfolio B under your current Master Portfolio, and then put whatever you want in each. You can have as much hierarchy in sub-portfolios as you want. The benefit to using only a single *.mm4 portfolio file is that you only have one data file, and you can operate on all your data at the same time. For example, when retrieving prices, you can update everything with a single retrieve. For more help on setting up and working with sub-portfolios, see our Sub-Portfolio Tutorial.
