What is the file extension? It could possibly be Excel.

what about quicken?

I think you'll only be able to open them if you have Quicken installed? - Does it give a .csv (comma seperated values) option? Certainly Lloyds bank does and that is how I get mine (which then open with Excel).

Natwest and Barclaycard download as *.csv; then I muck about with them in Excel

ok will try csv if it there thanks

LloydsTSB give two download options:

csv and qif. qif is a Quicken format.

I usually download as csv because it opens straight away in Excel.

The version of Quicken I have is so old (version 3) and it won't recognise the qif file.

I have used Quicken for years now and downloaded Natwest and MBNA statements online also for years. If my wife is out shopping and spends any money on a card it is live on line and can be read almost at once, in other words it is not only the monthly statement but hour by hour entries. I have recently changed to Microsoft Money which does the same thing, just fancied a change, it converts Quicken files to Money and saves a Quicken backup.
Friends have used both Quicken and Money with other banks and never mentioned problems.
The only problem I ever had was when I installed Firefox which refused to download MBNA so I went back to Internet Explorer.
Ruskle.

On this subject can I ask, is it safe to download this sort of information to one's own personal computer?
