Maybe. There are two ways to download and import data: The easier one is if
your bank provides a download option on its website to download transactions as
OFX, QFX, or QIF. Do that and then use File>Import>OFX/QFX or File>Import>QIF
to import the downloaded file into GnuCash. The other method is to use
OnlineBanking, which is provided by a separately-developed facility called
AQBanking. In order for that to work your bank must support a protocol called
OFX-DirectConnect and you must be able to obtain the necessary information and
credentials to tell GnuCash how to connect. More information on the latter
method may be found at
