Reg file to import Quicken QFX files automatically into Money
Since everything in a QFX file is OFX compliant, the unique “INTU.BID” tag’s value that Quicken uses to makes a connection back to Intuit (“call home”), and verify that the financial institution has licensed (PAID for annually) the right to import that file into Intuit’s software, isn’t of any consequence to Money and can be imported directly.
If you download QFX files from your financial institution’s website (that is the default choice on Bank of America’s Mastercard website now) , you can Save and then import them directly into Money [File->Import->Downloaded Statement…], but you may have to click on type: ALL FILES to see the file. You can skip the Save step and have the file import on it’s own by following the registry addition below.
Cal Learner has developed this registry fix that you could run, so that QFX files will behave just like OFX and will import into Money automatically:
Here is a 2-step way to create that registry file:
1. Open a new Notepad (important to use Notepad which you’ll find in Programs > Windows Accessories; not Word) file, and paste the following lines between the ===delimiter lines=== below into the file.
2. Save the file as “QFX2OFX.reg” and Run.
In Windows 10, it may still be necessary to link qfx files to Microsoft Money Import Handler by going to Settings > Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type with a Program, and selecting .qfx files, Change Program, and finding Microsoft Money Import Handler as a choice.
