I have a $3200 loss but only need $1800 to reduce my taxes to 0. Do I have to take the $3000 loss and carry over $200 or take the $1800 loss and carry over $1400.

You should fill out the Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet to figure out the carryover, both the long-term part and the short-term part. See p. D-5 of the instructions for Schedule D for the complete details.
