"As usual with financial applications I did not get my hopes up
very high. Normally they just don't do what I want, that's why I
wrote my own application for my Office 9 years ago in php/mysql.
But to use that for my personal finances was not a very tempting
"So I installed Skrooge from SVN and hoped for some cool import
function to get my bank data imported somehow. There was a csv
import. Knowing my bank also provided that as export format, I
wanted to use that. But it failed. The format of the csv seems to
be a big secret, as I could not find it anywhere. Except in the C++
code of course, but by then I gave up on that. Wondering what else
I could do to get the data in, I spotted OFX import. Opened my
online banking again, and Yes my bank exports to that format too.
Importing into Skrooge went flawless. The only thing I don't
understand is how to set a starting balance for that bank account.
Just made a fake negative money withdrawel to solve that."
