When wanting to make a transfer to an account that isn't able to have a bank feed into Live Accounts - eg Amex.


Get the message that a manual transfer needs to be created and are then taken to a screen to create the transfer - but none of the original information isn't taken accross - eg Account from and amount.

It is very time consuming having to manually type in all transactions off Amex cards issued by amex. Why cannot this problem be rectified?

Agree Jimk61 & champion.  Not sure what relevance the lawsuit between Amex & the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has to do with a data interface for the mutal clients of MYOB & Amex. Can someone from MYOB please explain.
