Actually, the addition of the "E" at the end would make the name English - Smyth is Irish - just had to point that out. <g>

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 thing that I like about using a spreadsheet is that it can be bent and shaped to suit the user. I originally wanted to use Money to hold all of my information, but didn't like the way things were presented. The spreadsheet concept means that you can do whatever you want to make it more useful to you.

Thanks for sharing your idea.

Cheers -
