Can you let me know which build of Moneydance you are using from the "About Moneydance" window? Also, are you seeing the discrepancy in the Capital Gains report, the portfolio panel for the investment account, or on the security detail panel?
I've recently re-implemented the capital gains calculation code that is used in the report, and those changes are in the current preview build at https://infinitekind.com/preview
They still need a bit of work to take into account fees on buys and expense transactions, but I'm in that code now so it'd be great to find out the details of this problem.
Hi. I have seen this behavior on (at least) 2017.7.1, 2017.7.3, and on 2017.8 (1686). Fwiw, I'm running this on MacOS X Sierra (10.2.6).
I see the discrepancy in the Portfolio View and in the Securities Detail panel. When I view a Capital Gains Report (in 2017.8 ), the "Gains" column reports $0.00 for every single transaction, as it should.
Okay, I was able to generate the Cost Basis report for the entire account even though I wasn't able to do it by security. I then saved the report, opened it in an external editor, and moved all of the transactions from the report output into Excel. From there, I confirmed that all transactions match up as they should.
The dollar value is *always* equal to the share number for every transaction. Thus, there should be no way for the cost basis and the total value to have diverged. I have also double-checked the price history. It is *never* different from $1.00/share.
So, based on all of the above, I don't think it's a problem with my data. I would be happy to be proven wrong, but I just can't find anything on my end that would explain this behavior.
