Yes this is very disappointing on Discover's part. I've sent them feedback that I am upset they removed the ability to download ofx or qfx transactions. I suggest others do that as well; maybe they will bring the feature back if enough people complain.
Any tips on importing the CSV file for Discover Card? I was able to import, but roughly half of my transactions show a deposit rather than a payment (no rhyme or reason). I tried the extension but it said the CSV was not compatible. I am just using the normal import function in Moneydance.
Thank you Kevin N., I used the built in importer feature in MoneyDance. For my first attempt, it worked pretty well. For my next attempt, I will change the menu from "amount" and try "Credit Amount" . All my transactions were reversed, maybe that was my problem. If not, I will try "Debit Amount" All other columns downloaded fine.
They advised me the problem is because of Quicken making changes
Yeah, I'm sure that's half-true. Quicken may indeed have made changes that now inhibits direct integration with Quicken iteself, but there's no reason that Discover could not continue to offer OFX (which is an open standard) and QFX (which is semi-open) downloads for other person finance software such as Moneydance.
Keep complaining to them! Maybe we'll get them to bring it back!
I was able to import the CSV file from Discover after some experimentation, but cannot get Moneydance to provide a Merge option for the imported transactions. Does anyone have a suggestion how this feature can be activated?
Thanks to all for the help. I was able to import it using the Debit Amount field. Still less than convenient, as I normally default to Excel for opening CSV files, so this means I now have to decide explicitly every time I have a CSV.
Already had a useless exchange on the chat, planning to call Discover later today. The whole "it's Quicken's fault" bit is BS. My guess is that they use Intuit's software library to create their QFX / OFX files, and decided they didn't want to pay licensing any more.
Also, I'm convinced this is an illegal restraint of trade in the U.S., will be filing complaints with the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This is selective preferencing of one vendor -- Intuit -- over all the others.
I complained to Discover, wrote up an FTC issue, and wrote the VP of cards at Discover. I have an acknowledgement, we will see. So stupid to remove something people are using and is already on the website.
