I am trying to create a QIF File for my Investment Broker CSV Files. I am using Excel VBA to accomplish this.
What is the syntax for the QIF Import file? For example, do I create actions for Mondance actions or do I use Quicken Actions?
If someone has created a import QIF file for Investments, I would like to see an example.

    You have appeared to post the same question twice. I have responded in your other post.

    I created a bank dataset and then created 3 security accounts and two investment accounts. I added the securities to the accounts. Then I did a file/export/qif.
    I had to create a dummy buy for zero for each security... You can always just delete these BUYs later, after the import...

    I then created a new blank account, and tested the import. It seemed to work.

    Perhaps use this as an example for the formats.

    The example dataset and the QIF file attached.

    .... and even more funky... If you follow the above, I think you can use the Toolbox extension, Menu General Tools, 'Older' Import QIF file and select the Import Structure Only option, and it will create the accounts, add the securities and skip the dummy buys... It seemed to work for me... Of course, you should test....

    (I knew someone would have a use for this!! ;->)
