QIF

I use a MAC, and I tried to import my banking data from Scotiabank here in Canada. It supports Quicken and a number of other programs, as well as ASCII, and QIF. I downloaded the QIF file to my computer (pcbanking.qif), but the format is QTIF (Quicktime). Nothing comes through into Moneydance at all. If this is not going to work, I don't want to purchase Moneydance.
Am I doing something wrong?

    Sounds fishy to me. Quicktime (QTIF, QTI) is for image/video/sound. Nothing to do with financial data.

    Ideally you want to select the download "For Quicken" or "For MS Money". These should give you OFX format files with names that end in .ofx. This is better than QIF, which is older and not as capable.

    if you run Moneydance and select File->Import->QIF and then browse to the file pcbanking.qif what happens? Are you able to import the file?

    No, but I followed your advice and downloaded a Quicken file and it
    worked... thanks very much
