Stock Position Updates

I have 3 accounts with Smith Barney.  When I update these accounts in Money
2003 I get a box that is titled Position Matching.

This box shows my positions that need to be updated and asks me if I want to
do it automatically, or manually.

If I check automatically and click finish the box disappears and I get the
account update screen and when I click next the position matching box comes
up again.

This circle goes around and around and won't update my positions.  I have to
do it manually or hit postpone to move on.

The problem seems to be in dealing with selling calls or short sales.

The Smith Barney website has all my data correctly displayed, but of course
the Money Software is way off in terms of value and position.

Any way to fix this, or are Calls and Short selling and covering just more
than the software can handle?

Thanks in advance.

I have not seen anything like that, but I routinely tell Money not
to update positions. I get out of sync with what Money downloads for
splits on a particular stock vs what the broker has entered. Also,
sometimes the transaction downloads from the broker before the
position data from the broker has been adjusted. 

If I accidentally say to adjust, I get an AddShares or RemoveShares
to delete.

It is possible some workaround would help, but I doubt it. One
different way to handle options is, for example, to enter selling a
covered call  as a stock and sell short 100 shares, as opposed to
SellToOpen 1 contract of an option. If the difference is that SB was
reporting a number back that was off by 100 from what Money
expected, then that could be worth considering.

I think you are saying that you sometimes tell Money to adjust, but
Money does not insert an AddShares or RemoveShares as a consequence.
Or are you saying that there is an adjustment made, but the result
does not match the downloaded data? In any case, it would be nice if
there was a setting where Money would not default the radio button
to make the adjustment.

It would be possible to examine the data that SB is sending to see
where the problem lies for sure. That gives you  a knowledge gain,
but won't make the problem easier for you.

Set position of x axis labels
Hi I have an Excel 2007 chart that is showing monthly performance for some different teams. I have modified the x axis so, instead of displaying Jan 2009, Feb 2009 etc. it has one label, 2009, for the whole 12 months. I did this by going to Axis Options for the x axis and setting the major unit to be fixed for 1 year. This works fine except the date is shown right against the left tick mark (effectively the beginnig of the year). How do I get the label to sit centred in the middle of the year?

Online Quotes updating not working

Need help updating a value in VBA code
Hello Great Plains Gurus, I need to write some VBA code that changes the value of a field on another form (SalesCustomerDetailEntry). Easy enough, but the problem that I have is the original form that fires the VB code is in a third party dictionary, and the Dynamics dictionary already references that third party dictionary. Therefore I can not add the Dynamics dictionary as a reference in my third party dictionary due to cyclical references not being allowed. Is there any way around this issue, ie calling some sanscript function to perform the update from inside VBA? I realize that I can...

Label positions
On an Excel 2003 spreadsheet which is much wider than any screen it is inconvenient if cell labels do not stick in the position they are left. I am finding that when I reopen the spreadsheet the labels may have moved horizontally to the left hand side of the spreadsheet (not the LH side of the screen but go to the screen which starts column A. It is tedious to manually move these back to near each relative cell especially when seemingly at random they return to the LH screen. Can this be fixed?

How can I get Positive values only from the random number generat.
I am generating a random group of numbers using Excel's add-in "Random Number Generator". I am using the normal distribution, but I want positive values only. I know that the test I am doing will work with the negative values I have generated, because the mean/stdev are correct. However, the activity for which the numbers are associated can never be negative, so my presentation will be less effective. Any ideas? You could use the randbetween function and specify a positive range i.e. =Randbetween(1,10000000) HTH Jimbola "Markw3700" wrote: > I am gene...

Need Help Managing Online Updates
In Money Plus I can't figure out how to set up my Janus accounts using "manage online services". I have 3 Janus accounts which have about 10 different investments. During the set-up, Janus comes back with the 10 investment numbers and asks me to match them up with my 3 accounts. It won't let me use an account more than once so I cannot match all 10. The root problem seems to be that Money expects to see account numbers, but Janus transmits the individual investment numbers. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or how to work around this?

Insert Automatic, Non-Updating Date Stamp
I use an Excel invoice to bill clients. Currently I have an Invoice Date field which is populated by the =TODAY() function. That's good. However, if I open the spreadsheet down the road and accidentally recalculate, the Invoice Date field is updated with the current date. That's not so good. Is there a simple macro I can use that Inserts the date when the document is created and then terminates? Something, I guess, that calls the TODAY() function and then pops the resulting date value into the appropriate cell. I know I can just use CTRL+; to insert the date manually but I'm shoo...

Updating combo box
Hi there, this is probably something simple but ... I created a table with a few lookup fields to make data entry easier on the form. The amount of information is fairly small so I didn't want to use another table to lookup the data. Thus, I created a value list and put in the data. Then I used the wizard to create the form for data entry. Later I realized that one of my lists had some missing possibilities. I went into the design view of the table and changed the value list. However, those changes are not reflected in the form. Sometimes it seems like this works and sometimes it...
