Recently a mutual fund converted from VEMAX VEMBX to VEGBX. When I try to use the Mutual Fund Conversion dialogue box. I get an error saying "No shares available for the acquired security." The transactions downloaded from TDA are Added and Removed Transactions. Not sure why I'm getting this message.

Also, one of the items I need its the price of the new fund at conversion. I can back it out, but it's not given by TDA. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    [Edit - typos] The reason that the conversion is not working is that the downloaded Removed transaction has removed the shares you want to convert. 

    You should back up your data file, then delete the Removed and Added transactions, then try the conversion again.

    You should be able to look up the share price for the new security on Morningstar or Yahoo Finance.

  • Thanks. That worked. It also helps to get the ticker of the old fund entered correctly!

    You converted the Vanguard EM Stock Bond Investor to the Vanguard EM Bond Admiral ?
    It was VEMBX to VEGBX
    OK - better - corrected a couple of places for the VEMBX Bond fund -

    Hopefully it was VEIEX, an Admiral to Investor share class conversion or the other way around.

    If you actually sold the stock fund and bought the bond fund, what Vanguard calls an exchange, the Mutual Fund Conversion is the wrong way to do it.
