Re: MS Money - First Direct Statement downloads

Slightly more promising response via Secure Message from FD... I'm sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. As Joe mentioned in his email, we are looking to reinstate QIF following feedback from our customers. Regrettably, we can't give you timescales for when this will happen but hopefully this...

Re: MS Money - First Direct Statement downloads

...not everyone has been migrated to the new website yet I have, but wife hasn’t....sounds like you are the same. I have been able to take some file samples from my wife’s to ensure the conversion from CSV to QIF 3rd party solution I choose looks right.

Re: MS Money - First Direct Statement downloads

I agree it’s quite a mis-step.

They have yet to respond to which 3rd party conversion tool / website they approve of from data security perspective now they have forced me to have expose my data beyond my normal extract upload process.

Just had my first experience of the the new look FirstDirect online banking website. All nice and modern looking but they have removed the ability to export bank statements in MS Money format.

Re: Manhole Chamber Query

To close this one off - Just had the inspection done and it’s a double width soakaway 2.7metres deep and 3 metres wide. Bit odd as it’s only serving two rainwater downpipes. Not shared and as it doesn’t extend under the area I am laying concrete all is good. Looking forward to receiving the CCTV foo...

Re: Manhole Chamber Query

Soakaway? John Most of them are filled with rubble when they are built. I'd agree but I just uncovered on in my garden, empty with a concrete roof to prevent collapse. John I did wonder if was a soak away too. How did you determine yours actually was a soak away especially in the absence of the rub...

Hi We are looking to put down a 5.4m * 3.5M concrete hardstanding for a a shed/gazebo structure to sit on. In preparing the ground we have uncovered a 700m * 700m iron manhole cover. We opened it up and below was a rather large chamber lined by 8 layers of bricks (good condition) plus a then a furth...

I have a significant holding in ISF which went ex-dividend this week and pays the four figure dividend 27 March. I am thinking now to sell the full holding of ISF and buy VUKE in time for when it goes ex-dividend on 21 Mar and effectively double dip on the dividend. iSF and VUKE both track the same ...

At what age does the rule regarding investment income greater than £100 for a "child" being taxed as if its the parents income? My 16 year old no longer qualifies for child allowance and can open a cash ISA but I cant see if his investment income in a long standing bare trust can now be ta...

Re: Gaier software

I've persevered with Gaiersoft for MS Money and as of the last couple of weeks its pulling in prices correctly in MS Money during both trading hours and closed hours. No corrections on my part required. I have approx 40 positions across single shares and ETFs. Data source fixed maybe?
