QFX File Standard - Or ways of importing transactions

I currently have a credit card company that has stopped supporting QFX exports, they only provide a CSV. I'm a software developer and am wondering if there is any documentation on QFX file standards or if there is documentation for finding a way to convert the csv data into the correct format

    Not sure where you can find such documentation but there are third party tools already developed that do that. Consider http://www.propersoft.net/csv2qfx/purchase

    P.S. I do not vouch for these products, just passing on about their existence.

    Quicken should eliminate the LARGE Ad space when a subscription expires

  • I had a product a number of years ago, on an older computer that wasn't available any more, so researched yesterday and bought a new product from Moneythumb   https://www.moneythumb.com   I bought the $39.99 version as I only wanted to convert csv to qfx.  It worked so much better than the previous software I had used. My Norton advised this was a new software... but I went ahead.  

    After downloading the software, I downloaded my credit union credit card statements to csv and then followed the prompts in the software. It was so easy!
    First clicking Settings, I followed prompts and established the account in Quicken that I wanted the data to go.

    Then clicking Convert, I selected the csv file I wanted to convert and it pulled the information in and since this was for credit card charges I clicked on change the sign and as noted in 4 below, the columns were assigned correctly except my credit union category had not been assigned a Quicken column. I clicked down on the credit card company category and selected for it to go into the Quicken memo column. That way it sent the information so I could see the type of purchase in order to categorize correctly in Quicken.  I have the Quicken 2019 Home, Business and Rental Property.

    While the convert file was still open, I clicked Import and it quickly imported the data and brought up the reconcile tab. That didn't work for me as I have auto transfers going into the credit card account for payments through the checking account. I have had to delete the CC payment lines that were imported and it also has downloaded 0 amount lines for interest and a line for total interest for the year that I deleted.  I find it easier to do the paper statement reconciliation. If you decide to use this software and have a different bank situation you may find that it works for you...
