What is changing?

Starting December 12, 2019, you will no longer be able to download OFX and QFX files from your NetSuite account.

Previously imported bank data, and any reconciled or matched transactions will not be affected.

This change affects Production, Sandbox and Release Preview accounts.

As of NetSuite 2020.1, NetSuite will no longer store any imported bank or credit card files after processing.

Why is NetSuite removing these files?

The OFX and QFX file formats can contain unmasked credit card numbers in plain text. This change aims to mitigate any risk of accidental disclosure.

What do you need to do?

  • Check with your financial provider that you can access banking data and download in OFX, QFX, or an alternative format.
  • For Administrators, verify that there is no effect on imported bank data by going to:
    • Transactions > Bank > Import Online Banking Data > List.
    • Click View to see a list of imported transactions.
