What is an OFX file?
Financial data file created in the Open Financial Exchange (OFX) format, an SGML-based file format standardized in 1997 by Intuit, Microsoft, and CheckFree; can contain transactions, statements, and other financial information; used as an open format for transferring data between vendors, consumers, and financial systems; may be sent to individual users as credit card or banking statements from a financial institution.
NOTE: Since the time of its introduction, the OFX format replaces the Open Financial Connectivity (.OFC) format used by Microsoft Money. It is now the standard container for financial information under the Open Financial Exchange Consortium.
