I update my security prices once a week on Saturday using Mike Bray's security loader. Then I update any shares that have been added due to dividends. I enter the date, DivReinvest, amount, shares, and MD calculates the prices per share. The problem is MD changes the current price to the calculated price. Is there a way to make MD use the latest date price as the current price?

    Hi

    I suggest you enter your dividend transactions first and the set the prices with my extension.

    Thanks Mike for the advice and the great extension. I used your advice this morning and it works out right. Still think the current price should be the latest date.
    Thanks again

    This is a very usual situation for me, since I manage anywhere from
    20-40 mutual funds at a time.

    What I do is enter the divReinvest for the date that it was declared,
    typically different than the current date. Thus updating the share price
    by using Mike Bray's security loader will change the current price to
    the latest price. It has the net effect of overlaying the calculated
    price with the current price, typically a different of a third decimal
    basis point.

    One could also go into the security history (security -> Security
    Details -> History and change the value for the current price if al else
    fails.
