Importing OFX/QFX files not working

AverageGuy
I've downloaded from my bank transactions in both OFX and QFX format and when I import either file, I get an empty list of transactions.  I've looked at the files and there appear to be transactions in them.  see:

<STMTTRN>
        <TRNTYPE>CHECK
        <DTPOSTED>20060130
        <TRNAMT>-4.89
        <FITID>37379972
        <CHECKNUM>2006
        <NAME>CHECK
        <MEMO>CHECK
</STMTTRN>

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Jim.

You may be missing the appropriate package. What distro are you running,
and what gnucash packages do you have installed?

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

Gnucash 1.8.9 on Suse 9.3 i386.  I didn't install any packages into gnucash.  I don't know how to install packages nor how to tell what packages are installed.

Thanks,
Jim.

When you say "when I import either file", what menu item are you
using to import the file?

File/Import/Import qxf/oxf menu item.  Then I browse for my file and I get a new window listing all the transactions found, but it is empty.

Thanks,

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

Derek Atkins
Is anything printed on your terminal?
Have you imported this file before?
What happens if you run "ofxdump" on the file?

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

AverageGuy
By "printed on my terminal" do you mean on the terminal that started gnucash?  No terminal.  I call it from the SUSE menu.  I'll crank it up by hand from a terminal and see.

OK, I get some gtk errors when it starts up,
/home/jwl/.kde/share/config/gtkrc:37: error: unexpected identifier `gtk-alternative-button-order', expected keyword - e.g. `style'
/home/jwl/.kde/share/config/gtkrc:37: error: unexpected identifier `gtk-alternative-button-order', expected keyword - e.g. `style'

Then I get:
LibOFX ERROR: ofx_proc_file():No input file specified
(Above message occured on Line 4294967295, Column 4294967295)
LibOFX ERROR: ofx_proc_file():No input file specified
(Above message occured on Line 4294967295, Column 4294967295)
I tried it twice.  Once I used the browser window to select the file, the second time I typed the full path name into the window and pressed Open. 

Do I have something configured wrong?  I don't see any import configuration anywhere.

Thanks again,
Jim.


This is my first attempt to import a file of any kind.
Ofxdump gives me many lines, I'll include a few here

Is it possible that you have already imported the transactions from
that file?  i.e. look at the relevant accounts to see if the
transactions you saw when you looked at the file by hand are already
in your chart of accounts somewhere.

I believe the way the qxf/oxf importer works is that if you try to
import the same set of transactions twice, it doesn't list the
ones that you've already imported.

I use this to my advantage at the end of the year when I'm closing
out my books, but I have Credit Card statements that span December
and January.  For my first import, I un-check the January transactions,
then I close my books, then I re-import the same statement.  The
second time it only lists the January transactions.  (If I were to
do it a third time, it would list no transactions.)

Another thing to test this theory would be to start a brand new chart
of accounts and try to import your file again.  If it works in the new
chart of accounts, then your transactions are probably "in there
somewhere" but the accounts got matched to an unexpected place.

This may not be your problem, but it's something to try.

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

AverageGuy
I know I've never imported anything, since this was my first attempt and it never worked.  The fact it is tossing off a "file not found" message tells me something is wrong.

I did try what you suggested, creating a new file with a set of empty accounts and imported the file, but it did the same thing.

Thanks,
Jim.

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

James Roman
In reply to this post by AverageGuy
OFX import is broken in the version shipped with SuSE 9.3. It has not
been fixed in SuSE 10. It has nothing to do with the processing of the
OFX files, but instead the hand-off of the data back to the OFX dialog.
I believe that SuSE is using an out-of-date link to the OFX library.
Unfortunately, there is no source rpm offered, so I can't compare it to
the original code tree. I found two viable options:

Install the Gnucash RPM package from SuSE 9.1 - If you go this route,
there were one or two dependencies that need to be loaded from the 9.1
as well. Before de-installing the version that shipped with SuSE, check
the dependencies. Keep the libofx from SuSE 9.3 as it works flawlessly.

Download a recent compilation of 1.8.12 - This is what I eventually
ended up with, however it was a difficult task of locating and compiling
various tarballs and source rpms to meet the dependencies. I didn't
document the steps necessary, otherwise I would offer them. At some
point I hope get around to setting up a SuSE development environment to
produce a set of RPMs to reliably load for recent SuSE versions.

Sorry for the late reply - I've been offline for a couple of days.

There is a problem with Gnucash on SuSE 9.3, as others have mentioned. I
got round it by building 1.8.11 from source a few months ago (see the
archives here for the long, sad story...). I've since replaced my PC and
am now running SuSE 10, which has different packages, and which does
work. The packages I have are:

sempron:/home/des/bin # rpm -qa | grep gnucash
gnucash-1.8.12-2
gnucash-ofx-1.8.12-2
gnucash-docs-1.8.5-1


If you're new to Linux, you're likely better upgrading to SuSE 10 and
trying these packages.

Regards,

Des

Re: Importing OFX/QFX files not working

AverageGuy
Thanks to all who helped.  Rather than fight the compile, I'll wait until I upgrade or gnucash gets released using the newer libraries.  I'll continue entering data manually.

I'm not new to Linux, my first Linux install was on a 386sx16 in 1991.  It was kernel version 0.12.  I used a 2 floppy install, a boot/root set distributed by H. J Lui.  No distributions in those days.  You had to compile almost anything you wanted to run.  I actually was able to get X to run on a 386sx16 with 8 Mb of memory.  Didn't run very well, but it ran.  Debian came a long a bit later and I jumped on that bandwagon. 

Thanks,
Jim.
