We've released an update to Investment Account Manager 3.2.2 (Individual and Professional) that provides an improved method for importing transactional files in csv format (comma separated values) from Charles Schwab brokerage. The improved import method was required due to changes made by Charles Schwab and their decision to disable the current automated brokerage download using the OFX (Open Financial Exchange) method.
This new method for importing transactional files will allow users to update their Schwab brokerage accounts until we are able to, as possible, get the OFX method reinstated. We are further working with Schwab to re-write the download method to meet their new transactional download format given their decision to discontinue OFX permanently going forward, migrating to a new format standard.
