OFX Bank Statements enter wrong payee/category

Postby PeteLucas » Wed Mar 05, 2014 2:17 pm


For sometime the when I import my bank statement (Nationwide UK) which is an OFX file the application
seems to be changing a lot of the payees and categories. The number of times I have had an entry changed to Christchurch Borough Council or
Church is unbelievable. The categorization is also off. I therefore have to laboriously go through each transaction and correct them. Surely there must be something amiss

Thanks in advance

We would need to see a fragment of misbehaving OFX and may be a screen shot of how the register looks after import

Please 'sanitazie' OFX before sending it to us, i.e. open in in a text editor and remove account numbers, leave the names as is because they are used for data matching
