HomeBank CSV Converter for ASN Bank & ING Bank
If you use the HomeBank accounting software, you'll probably want to import transaction data from your bank into HomeBank. I am a customer of the Dutch ING Bank and the ASN Bank so I made a tool to convert their comma-seperated (CSV) downloads to a CSV file that HomeBank will understand.
This software is available as Python script and as standalone executables for Windows and MacOS.
- it works :)
- if you open the file select dialog on Windows and press cancel, you'll receive a warning message as soon as you quit the program; feel free to ignore that warning until I fix this;
- it's not yet possible to drag-and-drop files to the program; I'll look into it.
Check back here if you ever need updates, contact me (bottom of this page) if you're having any trouble. I don't want to add an automatic check for updates; to avoid causing any concerns over your privacy this app would better not phone home.
Download HomeBankCSV.app.zip and unzip. Run the HomeBankCSV.app. To install, drag it to your Applications folder.
Installing Python is not necessary: the required files are included in the app.
Download HomeBankCSVInstaller.exe and run this installer. It will unpack the required files to a directory you choose, and if you want it will also create a start menu shortcut.
Linux & power users
Grab HomeBankCSV.py and run it, just make sure you have Python 3.x installed.
chmod +x HomeBankCSV.py ./HomeBankCSV.py <input file> <output file>
- Input file: ING/ASN CSV
- Output file: CSV for HomeBank Import, for CLI this will overwrite any existing file with the same name
chmod +x HomeBankCSV.py HomeBankCSV.py
Start without arguments to launch the GUI.
HomeBank CSV format
date ; payment mode ; info ; payee ; memo ; amount ; category ; tags
date => Spefications claim DD-MM-YY, but that didn't work for me; HB seems to expect MM/DD/YYYY instead payment mode => 0 = None; 1 = Credit Card; 2 = Check; 3 = Cash; 4 = Transfer; 5 = Internal Transfer; 6 = Debit Card; 7 = Standing Order; 8 = Electronic Payment; 9 = Deposit; 10 = Financial Institutions fee (transaction fees etc.); 11 = Direct Debit info => a string payee => a payee name memo => a string amount => a number with a '.' or ',' as decimal separator, ex: -24.12 or 36,75 category => a full category name (category, or category:subcategory) tags => tags separated by space (mandatory since HomeBank v4.5)
