Cannot import Apple Credit Card qfx if you have a credit balance

If you have a credit balance on your Apple Credit card when you export the QFX file, Quicken reports that the file is invalid and refuses to import it. This is a problem in the QFX file generated by Apple - it shows the <BALAMT>--100.00. If you remove the 2 minus signs, it will import correctly.

Would be nice if Quicken would bring this up with their contacts at Apple and get it fixed.

    That is interesting, never heard of a program putting out a double negative to make a positive.  That is a royal screw-up.  :)

    Well, they no longer show a double negative, now they just show a credit balance as a debit balance; so it won't reconcile in quicken unless you remove the '-' sign from the ending balance.
