You can export customers and vendors and transactions to Excel from 
Quickbooks.

Go to Customer Centre, Along the top you'll see Excel and a drop-down 
arrow which gives you the choice of Export Customer List and Export 
Transactions.  Then it's the same with Supplier Centre.

Installation language

Hi

I am in Brazil and using a computer with portuguese as its standard 
language, but I want to install Gnucash in english, so that the 
terminology in the program matches up with the tutorial. I can't find a 
way of doing this, can anyone help? I've tried twice but it 
automatically installs in portuguese (although I can choose english for 
the installation process).

gnucash doesn't start on Windows 8.1

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) from Windows 7 Home x64, which
necessitated reinstalling gnucash 2.6.5. gnucash now fails to start.
Watching in Process Explorer, I see that the gnucash.exe process is created
but disappears silently one to three seconds later, with no output. There
is no splash screen and no console output. A trace file is created with
each invocation, but it is empty (zero bytes). I'm at a loss for even how
to diagnose what's going wrong. Can anybody offer some suggestions?

Here are some things I tried: I reinstalled gnucash 2.6.5, by uninstalling
first and then running the installer, and also by letting the installer
invoke the uninstaller. I tried installing the latest stable build dated
2015-01-26 [1]. I tried the "Run As Administrator" trick [2], several
times. The behavior was the same in all cases--the process died quickly.

I checked an earlier thread from this list about a similar-sounding problem
[3], but that thread did not seem to come to any conclusion. My machine
hasn't been run in a dual-monitor setup since upgrading to Windows 8.1, but
I did use a second monitor in Windows 7 before upgrading. Disk space is not
an issue. I don't think permissions are a problem but don't know
specifically what the thread meant.

Any ideas on how to proceed?

Joe

Jerry,

Please use reply all / reply to mailing list or it's equivalent in your
mail reading software, this keeps the discussion to the mailing list and
allows people that may be able to assist and probably know a lot more about
Gnucash than I do to assist with your issues.

Thanks Dave.

More information needed - what are you stuck on - be specific here and try
not to generalise. First step is to get Gnucash installed and create a
Chart of Accounts.  It's been a long time since I installed Gnucash but it
gives you the opportunity to create a number of different Charts of
Accounts using the New Account Hierarchy Setup wizard.  I would create a
Chart of Accounts using the defaults and use that to practice on, knowing
that I would be throwing it away once I'd worked through the Tutorial and
gotten the hang of Gnucash.

trouble with date when importing a just exported csv file.

Using an account tree containing just a checking account and one stock
account for stock SHA1, I bought 1 share on 2015-01-01, then exported
the account transactions to a csv file.  I changed the date of the
buy in the .csv file toe 2015-02-01 and tried to import it.
I specifyied the date field and y-m-d, but when the import ran,
I got some error message about possibly the date field being wrong.
On import, I specified no quotes and  <at>  and the separated.
The exported file is at bottom delimited by --{--- and --}---.

My OS is ubuntu 14.04 and my gnucash is 2.6.1.

How can I import these transactions?

TIA.

-regards,
Larry

I'm still not exactly sure what "default screens" you're talking about.
Do you mean the "New File" druid, that lets you create a new file?  Do
you mean the splash screen?  Do you mean the Tip-of-the-Day box?  I'm
not sure what exactly you're talking about.  Pretty much anything can be
opened again.

Saying that, uninstalling and re-installing wont affect your state.
Application state is stored elsewhere and not removed when you uninstall
the application.  This is considered a feature.  Imagine if you lost all
your spreadsheets and word documents any time you took an Office update!

Good Luck,

certificate expiration issue


I've been using gnucash 2.6.3 on my ubuntu precise system for a few
months with no problems downloading transaction info from various
credit card companies.  But starting a few days ago, each time I
download info from one of the companies, I get a dialog saying a
certificate has been received and asking me if I want to accept it.
The new cert shows a hash and says it is good from 1/15/15 through
1/3/16, so I assume they update it annually.

In any case, I can accept it and things work fine, but it re-asks each
that question every time I download.  It never asks if I want to
accept it "always"; it is just an yes/no question.

I tried going to the online set up to see if I could find a
workaround, and I asked it to download an account list for the
relevant user.  It asks the same yes/no question there too, every time
I download the account list!

This sounds sort of like this old closed bug:

  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=559670

But that was about gnucash 2.27/aqbanking 3.8.0, and I have gnucash
2.6.3 and (according to dpkg -l) aqbanking lib 5.0.22-1.

Any advice?  Ideally there would be some command line or file editing
approach to telling it to accept the hash that I see "permanently".
(Since everything else is working fine, I'd rather not have to update
aqbanking to a newer version than comes with this LTS ubuntu).

Creating Several Accounts

Hello,
I am wondering the best way to start using GNuCash.

I have two different business accounts. 

One is a service type account (invoicing for services rendered).
               I pay myself out of this account

The other is a non profit account that i use to keep track of donations made 
               I pay myself out of this account as well, but also must keep track of and make payments for housing
allowances, and other things as well

So then i have a personal account that I use for all of my personal transactions

Can i use one file for all of these, or do i need to use separate files?

Any guidance would be appreciated
John
