Capital Gains Report Problem since latest update

Has the latest update affected Capital Gains report cost basis? This month a security (Peer to Peer loan balance) cost basis as reported by capital gains report is badly wrong giving me a large Unrealised capital gain. The Cost Basis reported for this security in the Investment and securities detail screens are correct but not on the Capital Gains report. The Portfolio Report correctly reports the cost basis for this security. It just seems to be the Capital Gains report that is wrong.

Ive updated to latest during July and now doing end of month reports this problem shows up.

A user for many years I have previously converted most securities over to lots basis but these securities previously didn't need to be - the cost (and latest or selling price) is always 1.

    Me too. I used to rely upon the the unrealised CG report to help me determine my potential capital gains tax liability but the numbers have been way out since the MD update earlier this year related to capital gains calculations...

    Hi All,

    Per the change log for the preview build...
    build 1695
    - Fix floating point accuracy issue in gains/basis calculation

    Might be worth a shot at trying the preview build.

    Safe computing 101 rules apply when using all preview builds.
