Using add function vs. boughtx for shares added to mutual funds; how is IRR calculated
I have been using Quicken for years and have used the add function mostly for shares I buy for my mutual funds as I have not hooked it to my bank account because I thought it easier to do for tracking my purchases and returns. I also have jumbled boughtx for some purchases form sold fund shares and used a dummy transfer work around acct. that was discussed in a post about 10 years ago. Now I am thinking that I was an idiot because it do not see it capturing my rate of return accurately when I look at the returns on my statements and compare it with what I have in Quicken. Does just using the add share function impact the IRR on these? I have been been searching on this topic and I am seeing some say that it does and am looking for confirmation and if so, it there a fix to this other than going in and correcting all my entries form 1998 onward. Yikes. Thank you for any help.
