I think my orginal question was misinterpreted.

The facts are:
1. I made 800 + trades with Datek.
2. At June 25th, Datek contracts IClearing Corp to clear its trades.
3. I receive 1099-B's from two seperate corporations: a. Datek b. iClearing
4. I write Datek only and "various" on schedule D, and list the specific dates and securities on the attached spreadsheets

The question is, can I combine iClearing and Datek trades with supporting spreadsheets by just writing "Datek" and "various", or must I also use a seperate summary line and net proceeds for iClearing, even though iClearing contracts for Datek?

Keep in mind that the proceeds are reported to the IRS on the 1099's under 2 distinct ID numbers.

All trades are through Datek but we have two 1099's for each half of the year. Any problem with just one proceed total?
