QFX import problem

When I try to import a .qfx from my section 457 retirement account, Moneydance only sees the number of shares. It doesn't see the share price in the file, but instead shows 100 or 10000, depending upon the fund. It also doesn't show any dollar amount. (See attached screenshot)

The file does not include the cash amount, but it does include the number of shares. (.qfx snippet below)
How can I troubleshoot this? Is the .qfx file not complying with the standard?

    What version of MD?
    Step 1, Menu Help>Show Console.. Leave this console window open and then try the import again. You will get extra messages in the console to debug...

    The console shows the share price from the file, though the decimal point is in the wrong place:

    Is it unusual for an investment QFX file to omit the dollar amount in a transaction? I don't have any other investment accounts that export QFX to compare it to.

    Does the line from the console shed any light on the problem? I don't know if it is normal for the decimal point to be missing (shares=71611) or in the wrong place (price = 210861.46)
