Schwab cash transaction import

Questions about updating prices or transactions in Fund Manager

Postby crawfordn » Sat Jan 30, 2021 11:46 am

Importing Schwab cash transactions has recently begun to show those transactions as sales or buys of "client" that FM is causing to create a new security named client. Needless to say the corresponding default cash transaction is also triggered (set to do so). Has Schwab changed their cash transaction coding?

Hi crawfordn,

Do you have the option "Combine All Cash Transactions Into Default Cash Account" checked when you import? If you test import an older transaction file do you see this same issue?
Thanks,
Mark

It seems to happen with Combine Cash checked or unchecked. I tried importing an old file and get the standard transaction as buys or sells of the default cash security rather than "client".

Please make sure you're only importing the new "B/D Core Data Files" with the file name format of: CRSccyymmdd.TRN. Schwab also has an older legacy format with the file name format of: CSmmddyy.TRN. Make sure you only have the CRS* files in your folder where you're importing from.
Thanks,
Mark

That was the problem. The Schwab download still includes both sets of files and I was importing the wrong one. Thanks.
