I should have stated the question differently.
This company not only had a name change, but a symbol change as well.
Is there a way to maintain the historical data (buys,sells,etc.).
Can I go into the COMPANY.DAT FILE and change something there to keep all the existing data.
: : What is the proper procedure for changing a company name? ie. Nexlink Comm. to XO Comm. I still have the same number of shares, etc.. I would like to do this so reports, etc. are not affected.
: : Thanks

: Hi Rob,
: Right mouse click on the investment's graph and choose "Investment
: Properties...". Under the "General" tab you can change the "Name".
