Security Price incorrect on Entering Dividends

When entering a dividend I don't have the opportunity to enter share price, as it is greyed out. But it shows $100 in my security detail window for all my stocks.

It should really show the securities price as at the payment date, or show nothing?. Is this included in any calculations?

    There is no share price associated with a Dividend (only with a DivReinvest would a share price be relevant). What we have been told is that this is nothing more than a placeholder and really as far as I am concerned to the user it should appear as blank space. The price shown is not included in any calculations.
