Hi Bob

Firstly, as Thomas's request, I'm responding via the KDE4 list (the
KDE3 one will be closing).  You'll possibly need to register there.

Thanks for your info.

Whilst I've been able to import your file, there was an immediate
problem, here anyway - lack of field dividers, or, more accurately,
interspersed line breaks, with each transaction split over three or four
lines, in fact, as shown in your email.  I tried also importing into
LibreOffice, Gnumeric and KSpread, and they also had the same problem.
So, what I had to do was to use the  tabs already present, and remove 
the line breaks to have the transactions as single lines.

You mention the use of Open Office spreadsheet.  How did you manage
that?  Did it allow for multiple lines?  The spread sheets I tried
didn't seem to, unless I'm missing something.

I did also have a problem with the date format, or KMM did, which I
need to investigate.  I believed I had that format covered.

As it has been suggested to keep a note of which banks are supported
(or not), are you able to tell me that please, off list if you wish.
