How can I import transaction data from an Excel spreadsheet into Quicken 2013 Deluxe?

I need to add the last year's worth of transactions into an account I've just added in Quicken 2013 Deluxe, but the bank's website will not allow me to import data from more than the last 30 days. I have a record of all the transactions in an Excel spreadsheet with separate columns for the date, description, payment or deposit. Is there a way to import this data into Quicken 2013 and avoid typing it all in manually? What should my column headings be? File save as format? And then how to import it as a file that Quicken will understand.

Many thanks,
Kara

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
