How can I enter the current price of a fund (it's an institutional fund, no ticker symbol) so that it show up in the portfolio view?
That view shows the most recent transaction price, not the current price in the history list.

    Hi Paul,

    You should be able to accomplish this in one of two ways.

    1) Open Moneydance to the investment account in question.
    Click the 'Securities Detail' tab.
    Select the security in question from the drop-down list in the upper right-hand quadrant.
    Click the 'History' button.
    In the resulting form, fill in the 'Current Price' field. - Click 'New'.

    2) Take a look at the 'Security Price Entry' extension.
    From the Moneydance menu bar, go the Extensions > Manage Extension.
    In the resulting form, you can install the 'Security Price Entry' extension.

    I'm not really experienced in using it but from what I've read on these forums, it makes it much quicker and easier to manually enter the current price for securities.

    Thanks Kevin. #1 did it. The history form is a bit confusing.
