I am trying to allocate lots for a security but keep getting a @you have allocated an incorrect number of shares. I have attached an example with tab 'Allocation' the allocation and the second tab showing it after i select ok

Any thoughts?

    Well, the second screenshot shows a sale of 117, but you have not allocated any buys to it... You have to allocate all the buys to sells for that message to go away...

    Yes. Don’t click ok. Keep selecting all the sales on the left and completing all the buys on the right. Only click ok when you have fully allocated all sales to buys
