Quicken 2014: Possible bug - Wrong downloaded posting datesI am on QW 2014 and I have observed what I believe to be a problem and I am wondering if others have noticed the same behavior.
Background: I have the "downloaded posting date" column enabled on my checking account through Suntrust Bank. I have been using it for the past few versions of Quicken and never noticed any problems. I manually enter ALL transactions by hand, ALWAYS, and then download transactions from my bank and the match them. In QW 2014, the posting dates sometime appear on a transaction in the register(often the wrong posting date) and the transaction is marked cleared as soon as the transaction is downloaded from the bank. Even though I have "automatically accept downloaded transaction" turned off. The funny thing is that the downloaded transaction is listed in the "downloaded transactions" window at the bottom of the screen with the correct posting date. As soon as I click "accept" on the downloaded transaction it will change the "downloaded posting date" column (although it is confusingly listed as just "posting date") to the correct posting date listed on my banks website. I found this behavior rather peculiar, but nothing major to worry about.... Until today when I discovered other discrepancies with downloaded posting dates.
Actual Problem: I received an ACH deposit of $11184 as a pending transaction on Saturday, Oct 19th. The transaction didn't actually clear my account until Monday, the 21st of Oct. I downloaded my transactions from Suntrust through direct connect on the 22nd of Oct. All of the previous listed behavior in the "background" section above was observed and the correct posting date was placed on my $11184 deposit..... No big deal, until today I was looking at that transaction to add an attachment and noticed the "Downloaded posting date" was now Oct 18th, a full day before the transaction actually hit my account. I immediately checked the "posting date" by right clicking the transaction, holding control, then left clicking "copy transaction". The posting date was listed as Oct 21st, as it should have been. I then clicked on "help"- "log files" - "ofx log" and then saved a copy of that as a txt file. I then did a search for the $11184 transaction and verified the following "<DTPOSTED>20131021120000". Which to me means, <date posted> Oct, 21st, 2013. I then started looking at other random transactions and found many of them to have the downloaded posting date to be off by two-three days. I have verified the date/time on all my computers and ran a validate on the file. Everything else seems to be operating in what I have grown to accept as a normal state. I have ran both a validate and a super validate on a backup copy of my file with zero errors detected.
Question: Soooo.... anyone else seeing discrepancies in the "downloaded posting date" column? Is there a possible way to have my posting dates go back to the correct date? Again, the correct dates are listed by right clicking the transaction, holding control, then left clicking "copy transaction".
