Converting PDF to QFX or OFX


#1

My Banks statements only come in PDF, I am having trouble finding software that will convert it to OFX or QFX. Can anybody tell me how I can do that?

It’s pretty much impossible any tool will be able to do the conversion out of the box. PDF is for humans, OFX/QIF etc. is for computers.

Depending on how PDF is generated, text can be extracted and if not, OCR tools can be used to extract text but it’s still long way for computer to understand structure since every bank formats their statement differently.

So don’t bother looking for such tools. Ask the bank to implement support for electronic bank statements which can be imported into accounting programs or switch to different bank.
