: I have made a custom report to show me information on my open positions, including the gain/loss using the "Gain-C(end)" field. This works fine for my long positions, but my shorts report the entire short sale value as a loss in this column, rather than the gain or loss on the position. The "Gain(btw)" and "Gain(end)" fields report the correct number, but include gain/loss on shares no longer held at the end of the reporting period (which I do not want to include).

: Any ideas on how I can get the gain/loss on all my positions that are still held at the end of the reporting period.

: Thanks for your help.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for pointing this out. It is a bug for this field when using
short positions. I will get it fixed for our next release (6.3). If
you'd like to beta test the fix let me know, and I can e-mail you an
early release version.
