Downloading bank date to Money 2003


D

David Patterson

When I ran XP, I could save the download file and then import to Money at a
later date. Since getting a new PC with Vista last December I can't do
that. The download file will automatically update into money.

There is worse now - one by one all my five accounts (with the same bank)
have stopped downloading. Up to last week I could still download one
account but, by then, not the other four. A transfer data dialog box pops
but nothing happens. It just hangs. Anyone got any ideas, please?

Thanks,

David.

In order to get the .OFX or .QIF file to get saved to your hard
drive, you could change the Vista file association for that file.

So to do this, if I read correctly, I think you would right-click an
icon that starts a Command window, and choose RunAsAdministrator.
Then in the window, enter one or both of the following two lines:
assoc .ofx=
assoc .qif=

Then, when you download the file, IE should ask what to do with it.
You could then File->Import in Money.

You could try opening Money by right-clicking the Money launch icon,
and RunAsAdministrator. See if that helps.

Cal,

Thanks but I don't think that this is helping. .OFC, .OFX and .QIF are
associated with Microsoft Money Import Handler. Isn't this the right
association? Are you saying it should be different and, if so, what?

My log on is an Adminstrator's log on but I have also right clicked and
selected 'Run as Adminsitrator' but that doesn't seem tohelp.

David.

Sorry. I was thinking you were wanting the file to download to a
file rather than going right to mnyimprt.exe

To reset the associations, reinstalling Money would be easiest way.
If that does not do the job, there may be a more complex solution.
