How do I view and download statements and reports?

To view and download statements and reports on the web:

  1. Go to Activity.
  2. Click the download buttonimage.
  3. Click Activity download under "Reports".
  4. Select the transaction type, date range, and file format.
  5. Click Create Report.
  6. When the report is ready, click Download.

You can download a report of your transaction activity for up to the past 7 years into PDF, Quicken, QuickBooks, or as a CSV or TAB file.

Here's how to filter an Excel Spreadsheet:

  1. Click the row with all of the subjects ("Date", "Time", "Name", etc.). Click the number to highlight the entire row.
  2. Click Data at the top of the Excel window.
  3. Click Filter, under "Data".
  4. There is an arrow on each row. If you click it there is a drop down with checked boxes. (If you uncheck boxes it will allow you to filter out what you do not need.)
  5. Click the box directly below the last fee/ tax/ shipping amount to get the total amount of fees.
  6. Go to the top of the spreadsheet and hold the Shift button and then click the first amount in the column.
  7. Click Formulas at the top of the Excel window.
  8. Click AutoSum. All of the columns will be added together and show the total amount in the box under the last fee amount.
