What is the proper format for importing bank & credit card data into MoneyDance?

    Hi Richard,

    For automatic imports, Moneydance uses OFX direct-connect (with those financial institutions that provide OFX servers)

    For manual imports, Moneydance accepts OFC, OFX, QFX & QIF file formats. With the help of an included importer, CSV and TXT formats can be imported into Bank & Credit Card accounts. CSV & TXT file formats can not be imported into Investment type accounts.

    Just to add: if you have choices, the best ones are the first three Kevin listed (QFX, OFX, or OFC). QIF usually imports fine, but isn't as great when it comes to handling duplicate transactions. CSV and TXT should only be used if there is no other option, and those usually take a lot of work to import correctly, depending on how your bank formats them.
