Incorrect Cost Per Share with Decimals

When tracking crypto currencies, shares are often in decimals (.01, etc.). Quicken does not properly calculate the average cost per share when shares are decimals.

For example: .255997 of a bitcoin at Quote Price $8,322.3229 gives a result of $32,631.944906 average cost per share.

This is simple grade school math so Quicken hopefully fixes this ASAP.

    Maybe you are not entering the right amount in the right spot.  Maybe it thinks that the .255997 (25%) of a share is $8,322 which would make a whole share be $32,000.

    Where are you seeing this?

    It is extremely common to have fractional shares, if it was messed up there would be a ton of complaints, which there aren't.
