: : 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.
Regarding QIF date format... Not all versions of Quicken behave this
same way, so we maintain the flexibility to import either way. The
down side is that requires more input from the user to make it happen
correctly. It would be a good idea to add this option right
on the QIF import dialog, so the user knows about this option controlling
