George, in working with your drip spreadsheet that you have so generously shared with all of us, I have added one feature that will come in handy when the 1099's start arriving in Jan/Feb 2000.

On the individual stock spreadsheet, in the empty column next to "Shares" I added "Dividends". I fill in the dividend amounts both under "Amount Sent" as you do, but also under "Dividends". The total of the dividends are in cell 5E (beside all the other totals). When I receive the 1099, a quick glance will tell if the amount reported to the IRS is the same amount I show.

Hope you and/or others can use this too.
