What is CSV to QIF Converter?

It's a free tool to convert your files

What is it useful for?

Some providers such as Paypal and some Bank Institutions won't export QIF files, for Ms Money, Quicken Sage, GnuCash, FreshBooks, Turbocash, Cashbook, KMyMoney. This tool will convert the files for you so that you can inport it in your accounting software.

Why was it created?

Due to lack of free downloadable tools.

Mapping fields: Type

If your CSV file contains a column that specifies the type of the amount (Debit/Credit) you can map that column as: Type.

The amount will be generally a positive number. During the process of conversion, the Type will be used to specify if the number is negative.

Example

num,currency,date,credit/debit,amount,payee

"0102046998","EUR",20120801,"C",174.93,"EMYOA B.V."

 

Mapping Fields Options: Country

On the Mapping you can select your country.
This will define you currency and decimal separators on the converted file.

Which web browsers are supported?

CSV Converter should work on most of the browsers. But it might not work on some versions of Internet Explorer. For the best experience, its recommended to use Chrome.

How to import Debit and Credit fields?

You can select these items from the drop down

Where do I get the converted QIF/OFX file?

Previously, the output file would be saved directly on your web browser. That was causing a lot of problems to people that could not find the download folder.
Now, the files are sent to your email. Make sure you add CSV Converter to your allowed contacts to avoid having the email put in the Junk Box.

Are there any limitations?

As you know, this is a free service and we use a shared hosting with limited resources, because of that, the maximum size of CSV files accepted is 350kb. If you have files that are larger than that, it's suggested that you split it into smaller files.
