Net Worth reports are showing incorrect values for Investments. The Summary correctly reflects Investment values but all of the Net Worth Reports do not correlate with the Summary or with the individual Investment values?

    Not MD support, but I took a look at my investments. One portfolio look fine on the report. All totals matched. But another portfolio totals did not match so I took a closer look. Looks like the Net Worth Report uses the last reported security value in the register although it shows in the report that it used the last value shown in the security history. I think that may be the problem.

    I agree. I was sure that I updated the security history. I ran a check and the security history did not include the last reported security value. I was sure that they did when I did my last update. So I updated the security histories and the report totals matched. BUT then I closed MD and opened it again and all of the security histories had reverted and lost the latest new value, so the report was incorrect again.

    Update: I have investigated further the issue of the last security history update being lost on reopening MD. I updated some of the security histories with the last reported security value (NEW entry) and amended the date of each new entry in the security histories to be prior to current date. Some I left with the current date (08/08/18). I closed MD. On reopening MD all history entries of the current date have been lost. All those I amended to either 07/08/18 or 06/08/18 were intact. It appears that MD is losing / deleting the latest security history entry on opening if it has the same date as today?

    there is a bug in MD 2017.8 related to security price updating
    the alphadvantage updater does not update all security prices
    prices imported using cvs file are lost when MD is closed and reopened
    try reinstalling MD 2017.7 ... the imported security price history seems to be retained through a close/reopen cycle

    Another thing I noticed. The "Net Worth" report is not using the most current security price listed. In my case, it used a security price from March even though the price for the same security is listed in the register for April, May, June, and July.

    I'm on w7 64b MD build 1691
