2. From the new screen, please enter the Share Class, Number of shares, and Transaction Date as well as the other information if relevant. After entering the Edit Share Details select Save changes.
3. After the Shares have been successfully added, proceed by selecting No accounts linked, and then choose the preferred Investment account. In order for the Inter-Entity Journal Tool to operate efficiently, it is essential that the Investment account is linked to both the Dividends Received (23900) and Dividends Receivable (62000) accounts.

To link the Investment Account across the different entities, the Investment account must be assigned to each of the respective entities with the Chart of Accounts.
