When adding shares, total cost required (3 Legacy Votes)

I enter my transactions manually form a monthly statement. My statement shows added shares and their cost price, not the total transaction, so I have to multiply manually every time. Quicken 2016 used to give us a choice to enter shares number and price with total automatically calculated.

    I agree. You should be able to enter any two values in this equation: numShares * costPerShare = totalCost, like you used to be able to do. But stop recalculating the third item and messing up the calculation part way through the data entry.

    Ok glad you clarified this as a Windows product. I assume you are presently using QM18.

    well we are in the same boat .The way QM18 works , the total cost & share qty is required, QM fills in share price. I agree would be easier if you are doing manual entry

    The best set-up is to be able to enter any 2 and the 3rd one is only calculated when you tab/click out of the second field...that's how it works in QM2007 and I think QWin too.
