I am now unable to import QIF bank statements into Reckon Accounts 2013 despite having done this many times in the past.
I have tried importing directly from the bank using 'Online Banking Centre' and by first downloading the file & importing using 'Import Bank Statement'.
I figured the problem might be with the file itself, so I tried importing an old QIF file which I have already imported previously. That failed leading me to believe there was some sort of corruption in my Reckon Accounts installation.
I have tried repairing via Windows Control Panel without any joy.
Can anyone suggest what I should be doing next please?...
When I tried in 2014, I went to import Bank Statement files with no error.
If that doesn't work try to select Web Connect Files as that got our Tech Support team member to successfully import after an error.
Keen to hear how you go Craig!
Thank you Mirko but neither of these have worked for me.
I have an option to 'Import Bank Statement...', which offers to convert a QIF file to QBO & import it. This option gives me the error I reported above during the import stage.
I looked up 'Web Connect Files' in the program's help. It refers to importing QBO files & says I should right click & choose open. When I do that it asks me if I want to import now (which I do), then in the next stage I get the same error as I reported above.
I tried also importing an OFX file which would not work because Reckon Accounts wanted to open it as a new company.
I'm not really sure what to try next...
Welcome to the Reckon Community.
I believe NAB offers a couple of QIF formats - a Quicken 6 and earlier, and a Quicken 7 and later. Make sure your export file is in the Quicken 7 option option.
This error usually relates to an incorrect date format - mm/dd/yy rather than the dd/mm/yyyy format required by Reckon Accounts.
Hope this helps.
