When i am logged into chase.com i have the ability to download my transaction history in a variety of formats for quickbooks, quicken, even CSV. Apparently users of Quicken and Quickbooks can (for free) configure their software to automatically connect to the Chase.com servers and download the most up to date OFX file. I have my own accounting software that i wrote in PHP and i have for a couple years been manually logging in and getting this in CSV format, and then having my PHP scripts parse the data. I would much prefer to automate the download of this file (in any format). I have searched the Internet for any possible hints, but have come up empty. Obviously there is some back-end url that i could send a username/password/account# to that would spit back a file...or else Quicken and Quickbooks would not be able to have this functionality. Does anyone know how i can access this without the specialized software?

I think you would have to check with Chase. Can you submit a request to them? If they do not have an API you could write your own application using the cURL functions to log in and request the url, read the returned response data, and parse using your PHP CSV parsing program.
