: Hi,

: I am converting over from Quicken to Fund Manager for managing
: my portfolios.

: First, I created a Cash account and set it up as the default
: cash account in Preferences.

: Then I imported transactions from Quicken and created a new
: security. This worked fine but the cash account does not
: reflect the effect of any of the transactions (purchases, cash
: dividends.)

: Is this a bug or did I forget to do something? (I checked and
: this works if I enter the transactions manually rather than
: importing them, but that's going to be very tedious and error-
: prone.)

: MV
: P.S. I also noticed the following: I have Quicken configured
: for DD/MM/YY. When importing .qif data from Quicken, I have to
: set Fund Manager for MM/DD/YY, but when importing .prn data
: from Quicken, I have to set Fund Manager for DD/MM/YY.

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...

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.
