IB importing into MS Money

    I just bought MS Money to keep track of my IB trades, but I'm finding it to be VERY frustrating. After setting up my accts. and importing a few months, I had no problems. But the trouble began when I had some opening short sales in stocks.

    It seems MS Money doesn't like this type of trade and adds stock in the account so my share position is never negative. It only does this with certain stocks. I haven't had a problem with other ones.

    Also, it adds or subtracts shares to "match my statement position" at the end of the month, but it doesn't match the statement.

    WTF!!!!!!! I'm about ready to toss this piece of crap.

    Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? Or is this another piece of MS #$%$#% ?

    Thanks for any ideas.
