Stock Portfolio recalculating wrong values

I hold stock of 1,000 shares of a particular company, which is currently valued at USD20 per share.

Suddenly I open Moneydance and the number of shares has magically gone up to 3000 and the cost per share is down to USD8 per share (from actual purchase price of USD24).

In other words, the number of shares has tripled and the cost per share has been reduced to a third of it's original value for no apparent reason. The current price per share shows correctly at USD20.

Therefore the current value shown is 3000 x 20 = 60,000 which is of course wrong; it should be 1000 x 20 = 24,000. My net worth on this one security alone inflated by USD36K.

Also the Gain/Loss is incorrect as it now assumes a purchase cost of USD8 when actual purchase cost was in fact USD24. I have checked history and found transactions which were wrong; I deleted those but the aforementioned valued did not update and remain erroneous. I can see no place where I can manually adjust this back. Any thoughts on this anyone?

    If you’ve corrected the number of shares then go to the account’s securities page and click on price history and manually fix the the share price.

    I was this smart, unfortunately it did not work, all entries are not correct but the totals have not corrected and are still wrong
