: Texaco has merged with Chevron to for ChevronTexaco Corporation. I had 40 shares of Texaco; now I have 30 shares of ChevronTexaco plus a cash payment. How do I post this in Fund Manager?
You can go into "Investment Properties..." and adjust the name/symbol.
Then, record a 4 for 3 split transaction. If the cash was for payment of
partial shares, then record a sale for these shares to cover the cash. If
the cash was a distribution, then record it as a distribution.
