Hi, I’m trying to write some documentation for PP (it helps me to understand things). And maybe, it can be useful for others (see Importing | hugsch)
I recently investigated the CSV-import. There is one use-case I couldn’t resolve: dividend payments between currencies; for example a USD-share dividend into a EUR cash account.
I use the import type: Account Transactions (not very intuitive why, but dividend payments with the Portfolio Transactions won’t work).
My CSV-file looks like:
Type, Date, ISIN, Cash Account, Value, fees, taxes, shares, Exchange Rate dividend, 2022-01-01, US5949181045, Broker-A (EUR), 200, 3, 2, 25, 1.1
The ISIN refers to an USD-share (eg MSFT). The cash account has EUR as currency. Importing this file gives the following error:
I’ve tried to add other fields (Gross Amount, Transaction Currency, Currency Gross Amount, …) in different variations, but to no use. Without some insight, it’s like seeking a needle in a hay stack.
If someone knows the answer, or could point me to some documentation (for example a clarification of the import types (see Einlieferung und Kauf von Wertpapieren in einer Datei beim CSV-Import - Deutsch / Import/Export - Portfolio Performance Forum (portfolio-performance.info) for a start, this would help me very much.
