ExportThere are three kinds of export files:
A DAT Backup File
contains all the data and is meant for backup and restore
may save it to internal memory if the SD card is not available, but if
you want to send it by email or keep it when uninstalling the app, you
must save it on the SD card.
- DAT Backup File
- CSV Text File
- QIF Text File
Text File can be used to export the transactions of a
specific account or time period and send the file by email to a desktop
computer where it can be loaded into a Calc program. The first line
contains the field names and the separator between the fields is a comma. The fields of this file are explained
in the help screen for Import.
You may check Delete
Transactions Exported if you want to delete the
transactions that you are exporting. You must check Adjust Balance if
the balance of the account should automatically be adjusted, otherwise
you may adjust it manually after afterwards.
A QIF Text File can be used to transfer the transactions of a specific account and
time period to a desktop financial program. If you check Without Classes,
then no class names are specified in the export file. If you do not check it,
but select a Default Class, then only this class name is not specified
in the export file, while others are.
The option Reason as Payee Description means that the Reason field will be appended with a slash to the payee
instead of being put in the memo text.
The file name is preset, the extension .dat, .csv or .qif will be added
automatically. You may change the name if you want to create different
backup files. If the name starts with a slash, then you must give the full path name (like /mnt/sdcard/filename or /sdcard/filename)
may select the SD card or internal memory for storage of the
file. If you wish to transfer the file or send it by email, then it must be put on the SD
The To Date ist preset with the date of the most recent transaction.
The From Date is set to the first day of the same month.
To Sync Service
If you select this option, then the DAT backup file will be sent to the sync service
after having been stored on the SD card.
If you select this option, then also the photos created within gbaMoney are sent to the sync service if
they are not yet there. This may take a while, but it is done in the background.
By default the character set UTF-8 is used for encoding the character data.
All selectable character sets contain the 7-Bit US-ASCII characters that are sufficient for the American language.
Western Europeans may select windows-1252 or macintosh, depending on their desktop computer.
