I'm trying to learn how to programmatically interact with the Bitcoin protocol. I've, seemingly, successfully generated a private key, WIF, and public address with code. I used Coinbase to send .001 BT to 14egr6kfYY4xiSVPim2sJnED4t89Yvn8hQ. I then used the Bitcoin-Qt debug console and issued

walletpassphrase <WIF> More

to import the address. The address has shown up in Bitcoin-Qt but the transaction is not appearing.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

As others have stated, doing

Bitcoin-Qt -rescan

fixed the missing transaction.
