    I suggest you replace the security used in the sale transaction with the security used in the purchase transaction.

    Are you using the same Ticker symbol for these securities?

    Yes same ticker symbol, in my wife's account her position shows the "C" on both buy and sell transactions. Apparently there was a change of names that I did not see. Need to be more careful with my positions. The next answer did take care of the problem. Sometimes I should know the simple answer, (I worked in a brokerage firm in the late 1960's and a Mutual Fund House in the 1980's. Had a 6 at the time.) Thanks for your question back, should have thought of these things too.

    Thank you, should have thought of that in the first place, getting simple is much better than trying to out think the problem into something it isn't.
