Awesome, thanks very much!  I use Tradestation and was unable to perform an electronic upload and was struggling to enter my info manually as well!

Thank you! That worked since I could only copy a substitute 1099 from Tradestation. Looks like a lot of us are losing money on Tradestation. Sometimes I feel that someone is looking over my shoulder, doing the opposite of what I think the market will do,  and taking my money, lol!
