OFX Download of bank transactions truncates the payees

Probably a bank issue, but the Payee name comes from NAME below (this is in the OFX file) but the real data details is in FITID field. Anything I can do about this from a Quicken perspective?

    Yes, it is a bank issue, with this note.  The OFX standard says that the payee's name is restricted to 32 characters (note the memo field can be up to 255 characters).  So, it is correct of them to cut it off at 32 characters, but not putting the useful information within those 32 characters is "wrong".
