When entering a new transaction to buy a stock the Cash Amt column in the register is filled with N/A and the transaction amount is not subtracted from account cash even when the transaction clearly indicates it should.

    The N/A is a sure fire indication that you have one or more Placeholders in the account at a later date than the transaction you are trying to enter.

    Go to Edit > Preferences > Investment Transactions and make sure the Show hidden transactions box is checked. Placeholders will have a gray background even if they are not selected and will have “Entry” in the Action column.

    Thanks for the reply. I was able to resolve the issue. It does seem to be a very complicated process however once the placeholders are created.
