Tool for making your CSV files ready to import into YNAB.

NOTE: currently works best in Chrome. See "Known Issues" below for more details.

How to Use

  1. Visit the link above.
  2. Drop or select the the csv file you want to make ready for YNAB.
  3. For each column in the YNAB data file, choose which column you want to pull from your source data file.
  4. Save the new YNAB file and you are ready to import that right into YNAB!


Your data never leaves your computer. All the processing happens locally. This is part of the reason Firefox and Safari have issues saving the new file.

Known Issues

  • Currently Firefox saves the file with a
    extension and Safari save the file with the filename as
    . You will probably need to rename these files before importing them into YNAB. For best support just use Chrome for now.
