How do I get a list of all my sell transaction in an investment account for a specific year?

    Try using the Investment Transaction report and select the Cheque # field put in the word Sell. Set other parameters as desired.

    Thanks. But Check # contains the check number of checks written. What I need is a filter on the Action Field which I have not been able to find.

    Hi Mike,

    What I do to facilitate this is to include the action in the 'Description' field of the investment transaction.
    For example, in the 'Description' field I enter:
    Buy: Microsoft
    Sell: Microsoft
    Dividend: Microsoft
    Dividend Reinvestment: Microsoft

    The 'Transaction Filter' report then allows for the use of the 'Description' field as a parameter for generating the report on the desired action.

    Thank you for the workaround. It would be nice if the filter allowed filtering on all fields. I have run into a similar issue trying to filter out transactions in my investment register that has a check number. Tax time is pure misery.
