PDF import from Commonwealth

Just to reiterate that. In Australia, we normally use three (or four)-character security codes and registry codes (eg WTC and ASX respectively), not ISIN or WKN. Often we don’t even recognise the security name! Hence my posts re nonsense ticker codes that are unique to each quote feed provider (eg yahoo) and mean nothing to us.

Hello @Ismail_Mogal and @flywire
the PDF importer is done with your PDF debugs. If everything is ok, then this should be included in the next release.
Since this is a new importer, please check your other purchases and sales to see if there are any other fees, taxes, etc. hidden in the documents. Also, it may be that not all PDF documents are working yet. Please post them here.
If there is time, you can still implement the clearing account (cash account). Also here… just post the PDF debugs.

@Nirus thank you for your fast and efficient effort. Unfortunately, it will fail on the security code (which it seems you put in WKN). I explained the cultural reason but my communication hasn’t been effective:

As a way forward:

  1. I’m likely better placed to test the issue using SelfWealth than @Ismail_Mogal with Commsec.

  2. Resolve Create SelfWealthPDFExtractor.java by flywire · Pull Request #2340 · buchen/portfolio · GitHub.

  3. Resolve: Security code changes with data provider.

Hello @flywire ,
I have changed a few lines in the source and there should be no problems now.

  1. Screenshot → Import and automatic create the security

  2. Screenshot → Settings from security

  3. Screenshot → Historical courses

Okay?

Looks perfect!

I don’t know how to do Step 3 without changing symbol in Step 2 to QAN.AX. Can you explain at Import CSV file - #5 by flywire?

Hello @flywire

This is not a problem. In screenshot 1, I am not changing the tickersymbol in the security settings.
It stays the way it is. As you can see in screenshot 3, you can see that I have selected yahoo finance and then the stock exchange. That’s all… :slight_smile:

@Nirus - So Yahoo is the only default Historical Quotes Quote Feed Provider. After selecting Yahoo and XXX (Australian Stock Exchange (ASX)) the security code has a “.AX” appended to the symbol shown in Screen 2. This is the nonsense ticker code I referred to. It is not recognised when the dividends just have the three (or four)-character security code (symbol). (That’s why I’ve suggested “.AX” should be a different field.)

In Reporting Across Multiple Security Accounts - #6 by flywire the Yahoo exchange code had to be added to import DemoDistributionsMultiAcc.csv distributions. This issue wouldn’t be apparent with ISIN or WKN codes which I suspect Germans normally use.

I wouldn’t expect future buy/sell notices of the same security (with three (or four)-character security code) would work either.

@flywire
Please create me an actual PDF debug in the correct pdf importer topic. Then I can take a close look at this and work out a solution.

Alex
