: Hi Martin,
: Automatic transfers to/from your default cash account do not
: occur on transactions that you are importing, only on those that
: you enter manually. It would be a good option to add in the future...
Thanks for clearing that up. However, I do consider this to be a
bug rather than a missing feature, as entering transactions should
have the same effect whether they are imported or manually entered.
: If you take a look at your .QIF file in a text editor, is the
: date format DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY? It is exported based on your
: Windows settings usually, rather than your Quicken settings. Quicken
: may have exported the date in different formats for transactions/prices.
: You can verify by opening the files up in a text editor.
The .qif file does not appear to take either Quicken (DD/MM/YY)
or Windows (YY/MM/DD, my preferred setting, but not available in
Quicken) setting into account and always exports in MM/DD/YY. I
think that Fund Manager should do the same and always import from
.qif assuming that format.
