: : : An investment that I have been updating since Feb '96 has apparently been corrupted.
: : : I just discovered this as I was posting some reinvestments. If I attempt to delete
: : : the investments in this fund, Fund Manager GPFs. What files associated with this
: : : investment can I delete to correct the corruption and then re-enter the data?

: : : Thanks.

: : Hi Philip,
: : What version of FM are you using? Even if a file is corrupt, FM should
: : never cause a crash. There is only 1 file associated with an investment,
: : everything is stored in the *.dat file. If you are using the latest version
: : of FM (4.7) and can repeatedly make this crash, please e-mail us the investment
: : file along with instructions on how to reproduce the crash. We'll take a look.

: Mark, I using rev. 4.7. The prices display correctly but the value of my investments
: is way off as is the number of shares. If I display all investments, the values
: in all of the fields are not valid data. If I attempt to edit or delete an investment
: FM GPF's. I'll send you the files associated with this investment. So the div,
: inv, & msc files associated with this investment are no longer used?

: Philip

Hi Philip,
Yes, the .inv, .div, and .msc files are not used by recent versions of FM.
They are generated if you export to the old FM text file format. They were
used by older versions of FM, but that was quite a while ago.
