Yes, sure. I should have described the structure of the CSV file.
There are 7 fields:
1.	Date
2.	Payment system (credit card, bank transfer...) as a number, e.g.
	number 4 is used for credit card.
3.	Description
4.	Recipient
5.	Another description field.
6.	Amount
7.	Category

Homebank does not use accounts the same way as Gnucash: accounts are 
only used for bank accounts, all the rest is 'category'.
Incidentally, the default CSV separator is ';'.

Thanks for your your attention!
