Capital Gains report using wrong cost basis
I have a stock A. Let's say the cost basis at the time of purchase was $100. Later the stock did a spin-off, with $70 cost basis staying in stock A and $30 going into the new stock B. I've entered all of this in Quicken (Windows). When I look at holdings or portfolio, it clearly shows the $70 stock A and $30 stock B cost basis as described. Yet - when I enter the transaction to sell stock A (but am keeping stock B), the capital gains report instead of correctly showing the $70 cost basis, instead is incorrectly showing the original $100 cost basis. How do I fix this so Quicken uses the correct cost basis ($70) in the capital gains report, especially since the correct cost basis is what Quicken is displaying?
