Unfortunately, one bank throws everything except for the date and the
amount into a single "description" column.  It would still be simpler if
they did not include the actual transaction date in that column, as it
means the description changes... well... daily.  Grrrr....

Again, I just need to figure out how to extract that bit from the bank's
description.  Any thoughts on that?

As I mentioned, that depends on the precise possibilities in the bank
data.  If the relevant data is always in the same columns of the relevant
records, you can probably extract it using MID(); otherwise you may need to
do a more complicated search through the text.
