: : 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.)
: : TIA
: : 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...
As of 8/17/2002 - this feature (bug) has not been added (fixed)???????
I'm evaluting Fund Manager and like the program, but if it does not
correctly handle imported transactions from quicken (by creating
transactions to and from the default cash account) - I can't use it.
: 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.
