Saving & Loading Preferred Report Settings
If the selections you chose for your valuation differ from Durell’s standard or “default” selections, then you can save then as shown in “Reports, Saving Selections”.
The risk profile will only work if you’ve first manually set-up your funds with “risk factors”, as shown in “Set-up, Fund Prices & Graphs”.
The “Yield %” figure is taken from the “Setup / Fund prices and graphs” screen, as shown below.
Data feeds such as Fin Express include yield figures for a few funds, but in the majority of cases you’ll probably need to enter these manually, as shown below, and described in “Set-up, Fund Prices & Graphs”.
