How does the tax application determine what is gross income from property held for investment (Form 4952, line 4a)?

How does  Form 4952, line 4d and net capital gain from the disposition of property held for investment calculate?

My client's investment interest expense is correctly reported on Schedule A, so why is Form 4952 not printing?

I need to adjust a calculated amount on Form 4952. Should I override on the form?
