Transaction download -- manual overload would be nice!

I'm not sure exactly how it happened (maybe because I had to make
changes on a credit card account that had to be closed and re-opened
with a new number, or maybe something to do with a random runtime error
I've gotten a couple of times), but Money 2006 had apparently decided
that a month's worth of transactions (about 65 items) had already been
downloaded, and it wasn't going to accept them, even though they
weren't in the register.    They're all in an ofx file that I
downloaded, but all my efforts to get them from file into account
failed.   Even a half  hour or so poring through old email trails on
this group didn't help.  I finally gave up and did it manually, which
took another 20 minutes or so (it helped that Money had already
memorized some of those transactions, so it filled in some of the
fields for me).

Is there any way to get it to accept stuff like that?  If not, why not?
 It's a great program when it works the way you want it to, but awfully
frustrating when it insists on doing what you don't want.

I am afraid I can not offer you assistance, but I can sympathize.  I love the 
format and functionality of Money, but I frequently find that it behaves in 
ways which don't make sense.  I am quite computer savy (I have a degree in 
Computer Science), but no matter what I do, the program just doesn't seem to 
work the way it should.

Good luck, I hope you figure it out.

Thanks.  I've been around computers a fair amount myself, and I don't
think there's any other application that I use that so often leaves me
feeling stupid -- not quite sure whether there's no way to do what I
want, or there is a way but it's really well-hidden.

If it came up again, you could probably use a text editor to modify
all of the <FITID> identifiers in the OFX file.

Keep extra copies in case something does not work as you would like.

Downloading a lot of data from web
Hi, I have to download a lot of data from the web.

Paid Transaction Removal not removing some transactions
When running Paid Transaction Removal two transactions for an account were not removed to history while seemingly identical transactions in another account were. As I understand the rules of paid transaction removal, a transaction will be removed if it meets the following criteria. 1. If it's an invoice it must be fully paid. 2. If it's a payment, the document amount must be fully applied to one or more invoices. 3. The removal date must be after the document date. The documents are debit notes, are fully paid off (CURTRXAM = .00000) and the document dates precede the cut-off d...

V10 - Transaction by debtor enquiry report

How to Block Unapproved Toolbar Download
My internet provider Earthlink, which partners with Comcast and Time Warner, is automatically installing in my computer a "twc" toolbar whenever I do a search with no returns. I put search terms in google but sometimes get the Earthlink Search Assistant coming up instead of google. I do not want this feature, which feels invasive and was never requested. So, I put in "Earthlink Toolbar" in the FIND feature in the registry and came up with "twctoolbarle7.dll". The "twc" is apparentlly "Time Warner Cable". After a number of long on...

Receivables transactions not aging individual transactions
Looking at smartlist, the Receivables transactions have a search/favourite added, including the aging periods. When you look at the search, it doesn't age the individual transactions, but instead ages the entire customers balance. I would expect it to show the aged balance per transation. Assessment: With how Smartlist is currently designed, the default smartlist object pulls from the Summary table for those aging period amounts. This is the reason why it does not show the aging for individual transactions. I know that the ability to see the aging of the individual accounts would b...

Downloaded documents
Yesterday I opened a document from mail by just 'clicking' it open (as in, I didn't 'save as'). I worked on it all day and kept saving it, presuming it was in my downloads folder. Today I went to look for it and it wasn't there, and i've checked and when it says when you open without saving 'as' the document doesn't save. I'm just wondering if there's anywhere, as i saved it and it didn't prompt me to choose a location, that it could be? This would save me hours and hours of work, so i'd be really grateful if anyone could ...

TRANSACTION and SELECT *
Hi all I have a question about SQL Transactions: For example, I have a table with 3 rows (ID 1, 2 and 3). Now I insert a new row within BEGIN TRANSACTION, and I do not commit yet. In another SQL Session, I try to select data. When I do SELECT * FROM Table, it is blocked. When I do SELECT * FROM Table WHERE ID = 2 I get a result. How can I make SELECT * FROM Table possible even when there is a open Transaction ? Of corse I only expect to get the ID's 1, 2 and 3 back and not the new row. I have looked about IsolationLevel, but this does not help. Thanks for any comments ...

Rounding on Investment transactions
I've seen this problem for quite a while in Monday (at least 01, 02, 03, and 04). But when I'm entering my transactions, often times the final amount (shares*cost+comm) don't equal out, it's always the matter of 1 penny, but I'm a bit anal that way. For instance. 0.78800 shares at 27.8900 per share. Fully worked out it comes to 21.97732. So when Money does the transaction it rounds it to 21.98 (makes perfect sense). My brokerage relays the cost as 21.97. What options do I have to make these transactions actually work out? Since I can't do a negative commis...
