Not sure how to answer that. It’s a transaction that comes from an account, is indicated as a transfer rather than withdrawal or deposit, and shows the other account it’s transferred to. The receiving account shows the payee as “transfer from <account name>” and shows the amount in the deposit column.
I mean the data that is in the QIF file itself, for example a transfer of $61 from a Cheque Account to a Savings Account would look something like the following in the downloaded QIF file for the Cheque Account
PTransfer to Savings Account from Chq A/C

No idea, as I don’t know how to get specific software to open that kind of file. AceMoney will import or export, but does not show me specific text of the file. Right now MoneyDance is the default for opening QIF files, and when double-clicked, it opens in MoneyDance. Computer does not offer any other options (e.g. Notepad) for opening a QIF file.
QIF files are just text files so can be opened in notepad or a word processor etc. By having them associated with Moneydance, which is fine for what you ultimately want, it just means you have to take a slightly different approach to opening them with another program.
For example I would probably open a QIF file with Windows Accessory Wordpad if I wanted to examine the file (there are reasons for not using notepad here) but to do so I would start Wordpad first then use its open menu command to navigate to the QIF file and open it that way

Very helpful, thanks.
A sample transaction from the QIf file looks like this:
But the transfer files are not there.
Ahh, I imported my checking account, and the transfers seem to come with the parent account. But, the second checking account I have when imported does not seem to bring the transfers, so many are still missing. I can tell this will take more sleuthing.
