Sold stocks and mutual funds still appear in Investment summery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can't get rid of previous holdings in investment summery unless I go to portfolio manager, work with investments, and delete the investment from all accounts. Doing this gets rid of the investment, but screws up the net worth over time chart.

    I've made sure that there are no fractional shares anywhere.

  • Same problem here.

    I've got five holdings that are all in the same state.

    In every case, I sold the entire holding in one go but they still show up in the Investment Summary.

    I'm sure it's a bug.

    I've renamed them to have an X- prefix so they are at the bottom of (all) lists.

    found a fix for this.

    Go to the holding that is still listed that shouldn't be there.Click on it.

    This will bring you to the price history of the holding

    Click analysis and check to the right. Is there anything besides 0 in the quantity?

    If there is, increase the last sell by the quantity by the amount listed. Now click analysis again and make sure it's 0

    If the investment is still in the investment summery do a File - repair money file - Quick File Repair

    Worked for me

  • Unfortunately, all five of my "orphaned" holdings have a quantity of zero.

    I should add that in every other part of Money it thinks the entire holding has gone.

    For example, in the Portfolio Manager display there is no quantity shown and when I tick the "Don't show closed positions" the

    entry is not shown.

    Furthermore, for at least three of the funds, when I did the Sell transaction, I let Money insert the full unit amount in the sell

    transaction.

    Glad yours is resolved.

  • Has happened again. Closed account still has a holding that says it has shares when it doesn't repair didn't work this time

  • Force Money to really believe your shareholding is exactly zero ~ see Cal Learner's response to my question, dated 2017-08-19

    Then:

    First make sure the 'account' is not closed (ie unclose it).

    Second make sure there is a checkmark (tick) on:
    Portfolio -> See a Different View -> Show Closed Positions.

    Find the investment that you don't want to appear in lists,
    (lower 'feint case' line, not 'bold face' line) 
    and right-click, choose: Account Details.

    In the drop down box, choose: Delete. (This word is greyed out if account is not sold out)

    Accept the 'Are you sure' prompt; this action:
    Does remove the name from drop-down lists but does not actually delete any transactions.

    Then un-check  Portfolio -> See a Different View -> Show Closed Positions.

    Then 'close' the 'account'.

    Lastly, set to 'watch'; this ensures the investment does not show in 'Monthly Reports'.

  • Sorry, thought I was pretty good with this software (2006).Where is Portfoilio-> See a Different View?

  • I have no idea.

    I use Money 2000 International English.

    Hopefully someone who has chased Money versions through the years can let you, and me, know if this feature has been lost / still exists or now exists with a new name - and if so where it is to be found.

    In Money 2000 the steps are:  Home Page / Investing / Portfolio / See a different view / Show closed positions

  • For Money 2005 and later, that would be
    "Then un-check  Portfolio -> Change Portfolio View -> Show Closed Positions."

    To expand on that...

    First, get to the portfolio. Since I used the Shortcut button to set it up, I have a Portfolio button near the top of my Money window. I suggest you set up that Shortcut, and maybe others.  Then click Portfolio.

    Once there, see that there is a list of "Common tasks" under the date, in the left column. One says Change Portfolio View. Click that, and a list of choices will fly out. The last one is  Show Closed Positions

  • OK, Thanks I am there. Problem I believe,  is if I go and delete the mutual fund it will change every transaction I've ever made
