Missing transactions after importing Web Connect or QIF files
I manage my checking account register with Quicken, by downloading transactions as QIF files from my bank's web site. When I import a QIF file into Quicken, the earliest dated transaction never shows up in my register, even though the QIF file always contains the transaction (I checked by opening the file in TextEdit).I tried Web Connect/QFX files when I upgraded to Quicken 2005 on a new iMac G5 last year. QFX downloads were worse, though, because (1) even more transactions were missing once I imported them, and (2) with QIF files I could at least re-download and import what I needed. You can't do that with QFX, because Quicken prevents you from re-importing transactions (which would be a nice feature, if importing actually worked properly).So I settled for QIF downloads and a clumsy workaround: to include the last date of transactions in my register with each download of new transactions from my bank's websites. This strategy usually resulted in duplicate transactions in my register, which I would have to go back and delete, but I never missed any transactions by doing "_overlap downloads"_ this way.This always annoyed me, so yesterday I tried migrating my Quicken data to a new file, a new version (Q2006), and a new MacBook. I exported my transactions on the iMac as a QIF file, transferred the file to the MacBook, launched Quicken 2006 for the first time, downloaded the R5 software update from Quicken's web site, and imported my old transactions into a new data file.Nothing changed. Transactions were still missing after importing either QIF or QFX downloads, even though the transaction data were in the downloaded files.I then wasted about 90 minutes text-chatting with a Quicken support agent, who made me jump through a bunch of hoops only to tell me that they could not do anything to help me, and that this is in fact a KNOWN FLAW in Quicken.I could, in theory, bypass these bugs by signing up to use Quicken directly with my bank, but they (the bank) want to nickel-and-dime me to death with fees to use this service.So, now I want to know:1) Have others encountered this bug?2) Does it persist in Quicken 2007?3) Why did Quicken permit this bug to survive even 1 upgrade cycle? This is a basic function in this software. It should "_just work"_.4) Does this happen in the Windows version? (Bet it doesn't.)Thanks in advance for reading this long post, and for any helpful information you can give.
