Would like to clear "Last Updated" and "Bank Balance" values in Microsoft Money Plus Sunset RRS feed

  • Question

  • On the AccountList page of my Sunset instance, the "Last Updated" column displays a date from when I copied the Money file from my non-sunset Money Plus Deluxe file. Similarly, it has "Bank Balance" values at the top of the Cash/Contributions account of Investment accounts. I would have hoped these values would get updated during the import of the OFX files, but they haven't.

    The ClearBalance.QIF method works for bank accounts, but I have not been able to get this to get rid of the unwanted values in the Cash/Contributions account of Investment accounts. If somebody has had success in this, please let me know.

  • Cal,

    Did you turn off Online updates for the financial institution(s) holding your Investment accounts in Money Plus prior to awitching to the Sunset edition?  I think that is the key as those balances no longer show up in any of my Investment accounts.

  • That was the solution, ameridan. Thanks I had just copied the file as is from the regular Money Plus Deluxe on the desktop computer to the laptop computer with Money Plus Deluxe Sunset. What I should have done is to make a copy of the *.mny file on the desktop, and turned off online services on that copy for each FI, and then moved that copy to the laptop computer.

    To fix it I could have just done that now, and ignore the file I had been working with on  Money Plus Deluxe Sunset. Instead I copied the file from the laptop back to the desktop, disable online access in that file, and copy it back.

    What I also tried that did not work is to turn off online access using  Money Plus Deluxe Sunset. The control was there, and it appeared to work. However it did not have the desired effect of clearing out the fields.

    Thanks again.

  • Anyone know if QIF import updates 'last updated' based on the above (not just to clear)?

     

    I've also tried playing with the OFX <MEMO> field hoping I would be able to record last updated and current yield, but money also seems to ignore this field on a file OFX download
