When downloading a QIF file from Bank of America for the year 2018, it downloaded 1/3 of transactions as 2018, 1/3as 2019 and 1/3 of transactions 2020. Do I just go in an fix the date or should I delete and start over? What did I do wrong to prevent this in future?

    I'm a fellow user.

    When you import a QIF file it is necessary to specify the date format. The format you need to specify must match the format that is used within the file and the quickest way to check the format is to open the downloaded file with a text editor and look at the dates.

    When the formats do not match you tend to get some very strange dates resulting, so it is possible that this is what has happened in your case.

    Thanks for replying so quickly! I will delete input and start all over. I’ll let you know if it worked.
