One of the things high up on my agenda is writing a basic CSV file

someone elucidate?
Can you be a little more specific?  Are you looking at the
import_trans addon or something else?
I believe so. I was looking at the reconciliation screen and it has a section for imported but not reconciled transactions. I assumed (possibly incorrectly) that this referred to transactions imported through the transaction importation system. I also assumed that this was the functionality referred to in section 15.5.1 of the manual. Since the LedgerSMB/Reconciliation/CSV/Formats section of the file tree is empty I assumed there were no such importers available as yet... again I may be wrong. In fact I may be completely and terminally confused.

But if there is already a means of importing transactions from a CSV file then I will send you a box of Montezuma's best chocolate truffles.
