I hope you mean you do not need any reinvest dividends transactions.   
Once you have such a transaction, the type of income being reinvested  
has to be indicated somehow, unless I'm missing something.

I still have it on my plate to try to come up with a simplified example  
test file.  I do suspect that some of my problems are due to oddities  
that arise due to the odd OFX foisted on me by Merrill Lynch.  I  
suppose I could just send you a few of those transactions.
