# of Shares Showing up in Cash Flow Report

When I ran a Cash Flow report I included my investment account since I am getting dividends paid into that account. The report showed the security that paid a dividend as an "expense" under "source/destination" and then said "0 Shares" under "amount". Further down in the report the correct income number was displayed under the appropriate category.

Do I have something miscategorized in the account or is this a program bug? In the register I have the transaction "action" as "MisInc" and the "category" as "interest income".

    (I see nobody else trying this one, so I'm going to add my bit even though it won't help.)

    I also get some pretty odd results with Cash Flow (or Detailed Cash Flow) reports on investment accounts. For one thing, the overall total is completely bogus. It is adding up dollars and shares (converted to $100 per share, if the security was created with 4 decimal places). I reported a similar bug with the Transaction Report.

    I don't see any "0 shares" entries as you do. I think I have seen those before, but I can't remember where. Something to do with dividend reinvest transactions being represented internally as a split transaction?

    If I select the investment account and the securities in it, the Cash Flow report results seem right, but I'm not sure if this provides you with anything useful.

    ljb, I did as you suggested and selected all the securities within the investment account and that "solved" the problem of "0 shares" displaying. Now the report looks correct. Don't understand why, though. Thanks for your help.
