    From C. D. Bales:


    Lest we wildly advocate, can any of you be more specific about what you expect?



    Here are a couple of related facts:



    - Quicken's ability to download data from financial institutions is almost 100% in the hands of each financial institution. The only way Quicken is going to be able to download anything from ADP is if ADP authorizes it and signs a legal contract. Quicken will happily download data from any financial institution that allows the download ... when it is possible for Quicken to effect the download (for those financial institutions that only allow Express Web Connect downloads).



    - If you are expecting to download the details of your paycheck - in the form of a split transaction reflecting your gross pay and deductions - you can forget it: the OFX download specifications do not allow it. All you will be able to get is a single non-split transaction representing the net amount of your paycheck. And unless your paycheck net-amount/splits change from paycheck to paycheck, downloading will be virtually worthless.


    - Any financial institution can unilaterally offer to provide QIF file downloads of their data. Quicken, Inc. would not be involved in that process at all.


    - And a QIF file download could contain split transactions, so you might want to lobby ADP to provide QIF file downloads.

    Well put.  Thanks for the info.

    I would like quicken to login to ADP (like [removed] does), and download my statement in PDF (like [removed] does - without having to have ADP do anything) [and it would be great if quicken would download all my statements and store them in a handy place.]  Then I would like quicken to parse all the data out of the PDF file ([removed] parses some data out. It's a PDF file parsing is ugly, but at least it's text and not an image) And I would like quicken to associate all the data fields in the paycheck to categories and create a split transaction. It will probably need me to manually associate the fields, that's fine.  And when ever a new field shows up, quicken should just ask me. 

    And if quicken has trouble, I would like quicken to create an open api  instead of the proprietary QIF format, so that people who want things like this can go do it themselves.

    If quicken could do this, it would help millions of users on a weekly basis (bi-weekly in my cases)

    Is there a reason that this could not be done via the existing ADP APIs?

    This would be fantastic!  No reason quicken shouldn't have the most links (like [removed]) of anyone out there.

    would love an easier (less manual way) of entering paychecks into Quicken. I would love it if it added all the pre/post tax disbursements, the travel reimbursements and the bonuses automatically so that no manual data entry is needed to sync the paycheck transaction in Quicken to my actual paycheck.
