I don't understand why I have an amount in the cost base box in the overview window in Reckon Personal Plus
I have no stocks as they have all been sold 
this has not happened with any other stock I have sold

Could someone please provide an explanation 

Much appreciated

Thanks Ann

Could you be a bit more specific, Ann.  When you say the "Overview Window" do you mean the Portfolio View?  Is the Cost Basis the same as the Market Value?  If so that's Cash which can either be in the Investment Register or the Linked account, or both.  If the cash balance is more than cash held then there's an issue in the Investment Register which can be readily fixed.

If you could provide a bit more information it would help identify the source of the issue.
