I wish to enter a purchase of a number of shares >99,999,999. Why is there a limitation of 100m shares? I'm using Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2017 Release R1.

Error: Enter a number between 0 and 99,999,999

Hi GjBees,

This is due to the limitation of the field. Fields in the Reckon Personal range generally have a limitation to 99,999,999.99.  When you enter a number larger than the limit, the program will not accept the transaction.

Check out this KB for a possible potential solution/workaround -

I've had the same issue. I suggest entering the transaction as 2 or more transactions adding up to the required parcel quantity.

thanks. I was able to enter as 4 separate transactions. However, the total shares in the portfolio view only shows 100,000,000 and the individual entries below it have been truncated. Oh well, I'll use Excel for tax purposes or find another package which helps me track my investments including reverse reconstructions, which it does not currently do.
