Importing banking transactions

Firstly I'm new to Moneydance.

My bank doesn't appear in the list of on-line banks so I tried importing my credit card transactions via QIF file that the bank provides. This worked fine.

I notice from the Moneydance manual that the on-line banking functionality has an acceptance process and the ability to deal with "matching" transactions.

Is this facility available to an "Imported" QIF file? I have in the past, in Quicken, Imported transactions mid month and then again at the end of the month. I have a feeling that using the QIF import will just duplicate the transactions and I will have to go through and delete them, (not good....)

    Importing QIF files will show the acceptance process but only if you set the "File Source" option on the QIF import window to "From a downloaded file".

    If you bank offers OFX or QFX files you should use those instead. The will have much less of a problem with duplicates.

    Thanks Ben.

    Imported the same file again and got the acceptance and the "matching"
    process.

    Also found it very to delete the "unconfirmed" transactions.

    Excellent....
