I am using Reckon (Quicken) Personal Plus

I have the following scenario and cannot find a way of doing it.

1.         I purchased some Options in company XXX for .01c
2.         They are convertible to Full Shares in company XXX at .30c
3.         I have now paid the .30c per share to convert the Options to Full Shares.

4.         I cannot find a way in Reckon (Quicken) to do this in one simple transaction.

    Haven't you paid 31 cents per share ? (or was it .01 + .29)
    If you defined them as options in RPP, then you could do a sell on the options and then a buy on the shares, using the capital base for the buy/sell prices.
    If you defined them as the share security, then you could do an addition of capital, using a -ve "return of capital". This way, the capital value of the shares is correctly reported.

    Thanks for the response John.
    I had actually done a sell/buy before I read your response.

    Guess it seems strange to me, even though its an adopted USA program, that they would allow for Options in Australia/New Zealand. Hardly a new feature in our markets.
