So on May 16, CM.TO split 2 for 1. I went into my CM security, selected the split button, put in the May 16 date with a 2 for 1, and in the two accounts I have that security it shows the increased amount of shares.
While it shows the correct amount of shares now, it appears that it has not compensated for the cost. According to MoneyDance, I am now down 17.81% because it is saying that my cost per share is $85.82 and it should actually be around $52.7506.
Prior to entering the split, I had 134 shares, and after the split it increased to 268 which is correct.
The first image is the security, and the second image is from the Cost Basis tab where it hasn't increased the amount of shares, but compensated for the cost. So the $14,137.17 is a correct figure, however, that section is still only showing 134 shares, when it should be now 268.

Average cost or lot controlled cost basis?
We’ve seen with splits that using lot control and matching buys/sells can sometimes correct cost basis.

I'm using Average Cost.
Not sure how you use lot control.

Would be interesting on a test copy of your dataset to use/try lot control just to see if it actually resolved the issue.

I will have to look through the documentation and see if I can give it a try.

I tried a test copy and the Lot Control idea didn't resolve the issue.
I'm hoping that someone from MoneyDance might have a suggestion to the issue.
