Importing Transactions from Quicken


This dialog is available from the File / Import / Transactions / Quicken (*.QIF)... menu command.


The Quicken Interchange Format (QIF) file format is a popular format for exchanging transactions.  Many brokerage/fund company web sites allow transactions to be downloaded in this format.  Both Quicken and Microsoft Money can export transactions to this format.  To import a QIF file, fill in the following options:


QIF File(s) to Import

Select which file(s) to import.  You can either import a single file, or all the files in a single folder.

Securities to Import from QIF File(s)

Choose whether to import all the securities contained in the specified QIF files, or just a certain specified one. If you just want to import a single security, use the "Scan QIF" button to browse through the specified QIF files and create a list of your choices for import.

Date Range to Import

Choose the date range to import transactions.

Import into Fund Manager Portfolio

Specifies the portfolio where transactions will be imported into.  Select a specific portfolio, or have Fund Manager match the account name from the importing file with the assigned portfolio name.  When this "matching" option is selected you can choose the "Create New Sub-Portfolios as Needed" option to have new portfolios created when a matching portfolio name cannot be found.

Import Options

Specify whether to skip transactions that are already recorded.  Also specify if new investments should be created when a matching investment could not be found.  (See the New Investments Options Dialog.)  When importing QIF files, Fund Manager matches investments based on the name investment property and the name in the importing file.


Press the "Next" button after filling in all of the above fields.  The importing file(s) will be read in, and you will be taken to the Preview Importing Transactions page to see what transactions will be imported.


Usage Tip:  If you want to transfer all your data from Quicken, export "<All Accounts>", and do the export with "Transactions", "Account List", and "Security Lists" checked for export.  From within Fund Manager import this file with the options turned on that allows the creation of sub-portfolios and new investments as needed.  Any closing prices in your .QIF file(s) will also be imported.


Advanced:  Fund Manager supports an optional "S" field in QIF files for specifying the name of the importing sub-portfolio.  If this field is found in a transaction, the QIF account name is ignored, and the QIF transaction specific sub-portfolio name is used instead.
