How to show how much deposited in an account

I recently opened an managed investment account with a set amount of money (e.g. $150,000 deposited using the contributx action). Obviously I am interested in how the manager does over time. My question is how to show the total investment in the portfolio view. I have tried using the cost basis and the amount invested but they both vary as trades in the account are made. Is there a column that will show the initial (and any added) deposits but be unaffected by the activities in the account?

    Thanks to all three of you for your answers. Jim, your answer was very helpful in explaining that there is no column that meets my definition. Dan and q_lurker, I plan to try your ideas as well and see which ones best meet my needs.
