Export item order

Jan 26, 2011 at 11:20 PM

I've noticed an interesting problem with the SellX action on import into Quicken 2010. I'm not sure of the exact order, but I've noticed that the export output placed the Date entry too late in an investment transaction of this type. Once I manually moved the Date entry to the first position for an investment instance the import was successful, for example:
^
L[account]
NSellX
$25.00
O0.00
D12/12/2008
MAnnual Account Fee
I10.76
Q2.323
...
^

to this

^
D12/12/2008
L[account]
NSellX
$25.00
O0.00
MAnnual Account Fee
I10.76
Q2.323
...
^

Is there a way to control the order in which line items are written to the export file?

According to their own specification (http://web.intuit.com/support/quicken/docs/d_qif.html), under "Items for Non-Investment Accounts"

"The non-split items can be in any sequence"

I can go ahead and order the output to match the listed sequence in the specification, whether or not it's an non-investment account. I'll let you know when it's ready.

That would be great. Thanks!

I have modified the export order to move the date to the first position for all BankTransaction item exports. Let me know if you need a binary release; otherwise, you can download and compile the source.
