Anyone use MS Money with IB statements?

    I posted earlier about this but no replies...Money is a pain to use. I installed it this morning and I'm pulling my hair out trying to use it. So many message boxes keep popping up that I'm going to scream!

    All I want to do is manually input some trades so I'll have an opening position. Then I want to download my statements from IBs site. I'm having many problems with this software...first, it doesn't always recognize my first trades in a stock as a short sale, and then it automatically adds shares to my account if it doesn't match IBs statement at the end of the month. But it still doesn't match! When I try to delete the trades that Money added, I'm not able to. It won't let me have a negative stock position.

    This program is not very intuitive, to say the least.

    Thanks for any help. Are there any better programs to use with IB?
