Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I downloaded my statements and changed them to the CSV but it will not import my bank information. Please help me.


Pleased to have you here, greenfield$1974.

I am here to help walk you through ensure your CSV file is imported successfully.

In order for you to import your data, your file must be a CSV file (comma-separated values). Your CSV file should contain the following information: Date, Description and Amount.

Ensure to leave off leading zeros and format the date like this: M/D/YY, not like this: MM/DD/YY. For example, January 1, 2016, would be 1/1/16. I have attached a sample CSV file for your reference.

Here’s how to import your CSV file:

  1. Go to the Gear Icon.
  2. Choose Imports in the drop-down menu.
  3. Select Import older transactions on the right for the account you want the transactions to belong to.
  4. Follow the instructions on-screen to finish importing your data.
  5. Click Import.

That should do it!

Keep me posted on how things works on your end. I am always here to help you in managing your transactions.

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.
