Money 2001: Operation cannot be performed


F

Hi All,

I use Money 2001 (Financial Suite Ver 9.0). Recently I have been getting
an "Operation cannot be performed" error when I close Money. The error
appears even if I have just loaded Money, looked at an account (single
click on a favourite account) and then close Money.

I have all the latest IE updates, my Win2K is also up to date with security
and whatever else patches.

Does anyone else have this problem, and/or can anyone suggest a
cause/solution?

OK. I've exported all the accounts, and reimported them after creating
'blank' accounts in new money file. Unfortunately my main account (current
account) is the one that is shafted! All the transfers between my accounts
work OK, but I can't import the current account data for the remainder of
the transactions.

Any tips on winkling out corrupt data from a QIF file?

Are you importing into a clean file? Does the export work okay?
Yes. All accounts imported OK, except the current account.
What error message are you seeing on import? I have no mechanism for
checking a QIF file (except by manual inspection). Try importing it on it's
own into a blank file - does it get to a certain transaction and then stop?
I can't remember exactly, but it seems related to currencies. I'm going to
go through the QIF file and delete the references to any foreign currencies
and then import the QIF file. I don't have time tonight, so I'll give it a
go tomorrow.
There might be some uiseful information at the links referenced at

I'll have a look.

Thanks Glynn :)

I finally got time to sit down and have another go at this. I went through
the QIF file and deleted three references to foreign currencies. Then I
imported all the data. Everything worked fine and the error I used to get
on shutting down has gone.

For future reference, currency conversion and QIF files do not work well
together!
