There is an associated "comboBox_priceFraction", where the tooltip has

In effect, it is a conversion factor to align pricing in the imported

the activity type associated with the human 'Sell Shares" entry. A few
lines late, "Add Shares-shrsin" is perhaps a better illustration of the
need for expansion of KMM's 'shrsin' to the more readily understood 'Add
