Transactions / Re: Downloading transactions from a .csv file
« on: August 07, 2017, 07:58:10 AM »
Roy, we do not allow at this time the import of transaction activity in csv format since brokers do not adhere to a single standardized format - that is why we use OFX for transaction imports. 


Roy, you can edit the symbol under the asset library | current asset library | select the symbol | then the edit tab, and change.  This will update all past records for the new symbol, and this new symbol will be used for future activity.


Support / Re: Prices for Options and ^DJI index no longer updating
« on: July 17, 2017, 07:55:03 AM »
Make certain you are running the latest 3.0.6 release of IAMv3.  This latest release includes modifications for changes by Yahoo and their pricing.


Thank you for your question.

We have no 'batch' import for historical prices, you would need to create those by specific month end date, and then use the file menu | import internet price file.  Make certain for the historic date, the format is in the correct format:  Symbol,Price,Date

Perhaps more easily is to simply create these historic price dates using the asset library menu | historic library | add new date feature.  Make certain all portfolios you are tracking are up to date with transaction activity prior to the date being created so relevant prices can be automatically updated as available.

If you have add'l questions, please contact our support team directly:


The delivery of both the ^dji pricing and option pricing has recently changed.  But we have this corrected and will be included in our next v 3.0.5 release, planned within the next couple weeks or so.  Until then, you’ll need to manually update these prices.  If you contact our technical support team directly, they can possibly send you a link to this update ahead of time if you like.

Yes, you can import a historical price file using the file menu | import | security prices csv choice. Refer to the help button for proper format and other help as necessary.

The historical pricing feature has been modified for changes required with data delivery, and will be reflected in our next v3.0.4 update we'll be posting, likely next week.

If you have add'l questions, please email our support team directly: or call 262-241-3990.  We are glad to help.


Transactions / Re: Taser name change to Axon
« on: April 10, 2017, 08:37:24 AM »
You can simply edit the name and symbol in the current asset library; all past reports and activity will reflect the new name and symbol.  If you prefer to retain the prior name and symbol on past reports, you could enter this as a new merger activity into the new symbol and name, 1:1 share ratio and same current price on the date of the name/symbol change.

If you have add'l questions, please let us know.


Transactions / Re: Unable to delete this imported transaction

I suggest restoring a backup file of this portfolio prior to importing this broker activity.  Or, use the edit menu | remove a security to remove this security, and re-enter the prior activity.


Suggestions / Re: Graph (chart) of performance
« on: February 22, 2017, 01:13:14 PM »

    Have you tried the new Portfolio Performance Comparison Report?  If you have stored the monthly/quarterly/yearly performance periods under the Performance Menu | Portfolio Performance Returns, you can then print this new report in IAMv3, as well as view your results on the IAMv3 Home Page | Performance Tab.

    This report/tab illustrates and compares the growth of $100 for the selected portfolio and benchmark indices.  Users can filter this tab using for

    YTD (Year to Date): for the year to date thru the most recently completed stored monthly return.
    Last Year: for the most recently completed January thru December year stored monthly returns.
    Last 12 Months: for the most recently completed last 12 calendar months of stored monthly returns.
    Last 12 Qtrs: for the most recently completed past 12 quarters, ending with the most recently stored quarterly return.
    Last 12 Yrs: for the most recently completed past 12 years, ending with the most recently stored annual return.

    Further, you can export any report of IAMv3, when in the report preview window, to a wide selection of file formats.  This might assist you for manipulating the report data as best for you.

    If you have add'l questions, please let us know.


Reporting / Re: Performance Comparison Report
« on: February 22, 2017, 10:56:12 AM »

Prior to using this new feature in IAMv3, be certain you have the necessary calendar month end dates for all past months/years under the asset library | historical prices.  These must be created for each calendar month end date first.  That is, regardless of last month-end trading day, use the actual calendar month end date, for example January 31, February 28 (or 29th if leap year), March 31, etc.  Once you have verified these, you can auto populate the portfolio returns for the new performance tab using the Add Year button.

If you have add’l questions, please let us know.


Most investors understand the benefits of portfolio allocation analysis and diversification.  Like the old adage "don't keep all your eggs in one basket", long-term investing success is often achieved by setting and maintaining a proper mix of asset allocations.  With this in mind, IAMv3 Individual includes two levels of allocation analysis for investors to properly monitor their investments.

In level 1, this view of portfolio allocation and rebalancing does not use fund proportional compositions by percent of class, sector and size when deriving current allocations.  Rather, this view is a more general view of asset allocation analysis, where the entire market value of a portfolio holding is properly grouped by asset type.

In level 2, much like Morningstar’s X-Ray analysis, portfolio allocations will use additionally the proportional compositions of any funds held in your portfolio when Investment Account Manager derives asset, sector and size allocation percentages. This means each fund's proportional impact will be included along with any individual holdings when deriving the allocation analysis of your portfolio.

Users can view these allocations on the IAMv3 Home Page | Allocations tab.

Use this forum to post questions to the developers, or other IAMv3 users specific questions, or to leave investment ideas for discussion.

Investment Account Manager v3 Individual is able to import existing portfolio data from other software tools.  These include:

• Captools Investment Software
• Intuit Quicken
• Financial Institutions

Please refer to the specific help topics provided within IAMv3 Individual for discussions on these import options.  Or post your question here and the developers will answer in a timely fashion.
