In register view of investment account, a way to see a security balance?

I'm new to Moneydance, and I'm trying to set up my Fidelity account. Fidelity uses a money market fund as "cash", and apparently the way to handle this is in MD is to record buys and sells of shares in the money market security. Described here:

That means your "cash balance" in the register stays at zero. My problem with this is that I'm trying to enter historical data and make sure the cash balance is the same as reported by Fidelity in their history view, which shows you transactions and cash balances. If I could somehow see the "shares balance" of the money market fund at a given line in the register, that would let me double check that my history lines up with fidelity. Any way to do this?

    In most instance the relationship that you describe between the Investment register and the security will not exist, it is only in this specific sort of instance that it will. I cannot think of any way in Moneydance to show this.

    I'm thinking that perhaps generating a Cost Basis report for the security in question may give you the data you need, you would have to generate the report on an as needed basis but it may be sufficient for checking the data.
