Import using Broker Connect

General Procedure:
1.  Run TradeLog and click on the Vanguard Imp button.
2.  A popup dialog box will ask you to select your import method.
    Select brokerConnect and click OK.
Please note that this dialog box will only popup if you selected "Select each time" as your default import method from Accounts, Edit. You can make brokerConnect your default import method to save one keystroke when importing. To do so go to the Accounts menu and choose Edit.

The From date pick box shows the from date that will be used for this import. You can use the default date or if you want to import a specific day or you can select the first of the month date from the drop down calendar fro a specific month.
