Quickbooks Bank Import - Association Issue
Posted on 2013-01-23
Trying to use the Quickbooks download file from my bank. When I get the file, and try to import it into my checking account, I get a number of issues for account transactions, that don't actually map to "Payees". Two examples are "ATM CHECK DEPOSIT" and "BANKCARD". The former is the bank's reference to the fact that my deposit was made at the ATM, as most of them are. The latter is the bank's reference to the fact that my payment wasn't made via check - it was paid by my bank card, again, as most of them are.
I don't want to create accounts for them. That wouldn't make any sense. They are from/to different customers/vendors. I similarly can't create Aliases for them. What I really want is for the software to recognize the fact that the deposits and withdrawals have been taken, and then relate them to deposits I've already recorded, or to purchases/payments made.
How do I do this? Maybe I just need to not use this feature...?
