Import Transaction from Mint fails

Aug 28, 2016 09:24AM EDT

Hello, I had mostly success with exporting transactions from Mint to import into HelloWallet. However, I have one bank that refuses to go into HelloWallet. I select the file and while it reads it, I get an error "Import File Error: We are unable to process this file. Please choose another.".

I suspect the problem is field length or some special character somewhere that the import doesn't like. I didn't alter the file coming from Mint, but regardless of how a slice the export (different date ranges, subsets of transactions, etc) I get the same result. I looked at the cvs file and I don't detect anything with columns lining up wrong or anything that catches my eye as obviously wrong. The field length of the "Original Description" fields is where I suspect the problem is because it is rather long.

Can someone tell me what the data field requirements are for Mint export? I realize it is supposed to be automated, (and most worked as it should) but I need the technical specifics to tweak the file. (max field length, special character limitations, type of data expected, etc). If I understand what it is looking for I can fix the file, I need a hint where to start.
