Anybody tried to import data to Quicken for Mac?

I have a crude little LC utility stack that converts a CSV file to QIF - that would give you a start. Just contact me off list and I can send that to you if you want.

I’m trying to see if a livecode solution fits my problem.  It’s kinda like folks talking about using Livecode to format data for export to Excell. I had wondered if anybody on this list had faced this problem, and trying to format for Quicken, which is a very popular financial app. I’m not hopeful, but thought I’d check.

Bank statement downloads don’t list the name of the person who made the transaction (at least some don’t), online payment systems (Converge, for example) allow csv downloads and it’s possible to get a csv formatted file of transactions that include payee name, address, phone, etc that I would like to keep. Merging these csv downloads with bank statements that list “Batches”, which often contain numerous credit card purchases, could be an onerous hand editing job..the kind I hate. I’m trying to streamline this task.
