Dividends Invest Amount Value (Div Income vs Reinvest Div)

Not sure why this happens exactly but my TD Ameritrade brokerage account downloads dividends for a given fund in two different ways (Dividend Income followed by a Buy, or just a plain single Reinvest Dividend).

The latter doesn't tally the investment amount when I select the record (1 selected $0.00)

    That's because the dividend received is IMMEDIATELY used to buy more shares ... thus resulting in $0.
    Run an investment income report to see that it IS actually included.

    Enable the Invest Amt column in the register to see the amount of the reinvested dividend.

    Hi, it's already enabled - I can see the value but it doesn't get tallied with the other dividend type when multi-selecting
