Downloading Statement enters Duplicate Transactions--Need Advise...

    Why would MS Money NOT match downloaded transactions with already
    entered transactions????

    I have been creating my own QIF download from BOA every few days to
    download into MO7. I create my QIF in Excel by copying and pasting from
    the BOA website and I import it into MO7 as a regular statement. This
    works great ....that is until I download the end of the month statement
    from BOA.

    When I download THEIR statement, MS Money does not MATCH the
    transactions. Therefore I end up having two of every transaction
    (except the ones that were entered from Bills Paid). Since this month I
    had 155 transactions, I am looking at a good hour or two of work.

    This means I cannot simply accept the transaction. I have to click the
    CHANGE button, click "Match this transaction to an item in my register"
    and scroll to find & check the transaction which is a different date
    (one date is the posted date and one is the transaction date), click
    DONE and THEN I can click ACCEPT.

    Does ANYONE have any ideas on why the transactions I enter with my own
    QIF file are not recognized when I download my bank statement into MO7?

    I don't know that much about QIF files, so maybe there is something I
    am not understanding about how QIF files are matched. Any thoughts
    welcome.

    Thanks,
    Anna
