Thanks for your response. One further clarification: in the spreadsheet I have, can I list each of my individual buys with a total and then all my individual sales together with a total?

EX: Buy 1/5/99 200 ABC $1000
Buy 1/8/99 400 ABC $2000
Buy 1/10/99 300 CDE $2000
Total Cost: $5000

Sell 1/5/99 200 ABC $2000
Sell 1/8/99 400 ABC $3000
Sell 1/10/99 300 CDE $3000
Total Gain/Loss: $8000

Or do I have to organize the buys and sales in the spreadsheet to look exactly like the columns in Schedule D?

Amt. Descr. Buy_Date Cost Sell_Date Sale_Amt Gain/Loss

The line above is out of memory so excuse me for any inaccuracies but it's just there to clarify my question.
