: : : 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.
: : Thanks,
: : Mark

This feature has been added into FM 6.0, currently under development. I
expect FM 6.0 to be out in beta within the next month or so.
