Now...when I open the Bank file in GnuCash, it seems all my transactions are there BUT I can not get the same look/screen that I have on Quicken. In GnuCash on the right side of the window I seem to just get a running total. In quicken, I would have the same figure on the right side as I would on my paper ledger
Not sure I entirely understand what you did. Sounded like you felt that you had to use Windows to download the QIF. I use Firefox on Linux to do all my on-line banking. So you should not feel you need Windows to interact with your bank sites.

My gnucash has a deposit, a withdrawal and a balance column on the right side of the account screen. So I am not sure what you are seeing or what you are expecting.

When I started with gnucash, I just went all the way through the tutorial before really using it.

As TB0ne said, gnucash is not Quicken.

I do NOT use any online banking with Quicken or do plan on using it with Gnucash. I just use it to keep a good history records, usually to search for things or make a report of some expenditures. Also helps me to keep my paper ledger correct when I reconsile with the statment. *I don't think these reply windows have spell check...huh* LOL

I want to thank everyone for your input... :-)

Hi Terry I'm Eddy from Oakland, there's a LUG meeting on University in Berkeley at the Bobby G's Pizza by UC berkeley, every2nd & 4th sunday, between 12 & 3.
Maybe I'll see you there 1 day.
If you should happen to go there, there's a 12yr old kid who's very well versed & very helpful. You would be surprised at how much he knows about servers & linux in general. My advice approach him.
