Microsoft Money Import using QIF file fails

Post by JSMWhitaker »

I'm try to import data from MS Money by creating a QIF file and then importing from that. Every time I try, MMEX shuts down. Reopening shows no rows imported.

UPDATE
I wonder if it is a problem with the size of the file; it has some 47k rows. I have created another file with only 160 rows and that has loaded OK. Is there a known size limitation?

There is no limitation.
Possibly there is not enough PC's memory for this operation.

OK, I shall monitor that and see. 8Gb is usually not stressed by this sort of thing.

I've tried again and there is no indication of significant memory use at all. Plenty of headroom in any case - 4.3 Gb available.

Could you reproduce the issue with mmex 1.3.5-rc.2 ?

I discovered that I was using 1.3.5-rc.2 !
Changed to 1.3.4 - same behaviour, a large file crashes the application. Using a smaller file the import process runs but every record has an error and no records are loaded. The reported error is: "Error: Transaction Account is incorrect".

Could you provide QIF file sample?

Same problem here, importing large QIF file from Anmoney.

Crashes with no messages after 18200 lines.

I'm afraid I can't provide a sample - it's all highly sensitive info. Any way of getting any logging?
