Downloads from Bank Accounts

Postby DaveM » Sun Jan 03, 2016 6:05 pm

Hi

When downloading from banks, I am getting some strange date formats, not the standard US v UK. Is this a feature of the application or something to do with the Bank? Have you seen this sort of thing before?

Hello,


You can save bank downloaded data locally and open it in a text editor such as notepad on Windows or sublime on Mac

Usually QIF date formats are a little strange because it is a really old outdated format but OFX/QFX should be in the US format


Thanks,

Hello,

you can adjust the Date format options in the Preferences - so for example if the format for the downloaded dates inside the QIF file is Day/Month/Year you may want to adjust Date Pattern in My Money from MM/dd/yyyy to dd/MM/yyyy
