CIBC CreditCard QBO export/import not a valid webconnect file.

The exports from CIBC in QBO format work for chequing accounts but currently (as of July 2018) fail for credit card (VISA).

After an hour's worth of work, I can answer my own question:

For CIBC credit card QBO exports the headers are now different than they were a year or so ago. Fortunately, I had an older QBO VISA file that I had saved (after fixing that as well) to compare to.

In summary, you're getting rid of the below entries:



And adding:


Open the QBO file with an editor and make similar to this:


I'm assuming the format requirements for the desktop version are different than the online one.  And, again, there'll be plenty of finger pointing between Intuit and CIBC.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
