I am running on a Mac, and have been using Mac Quicken for quite awhile. But my accountant wants me to produce my account data that he can read into a Windows program that can only interpret files that Windows Quicken produces. It seems that Mac Quicken and Windows Quicken are mutually incompatible.

So I am thinking of switching to Moneydance. But it would be crucial to know that Moneydance on a Mac can export a file that would be truly compatible with what Windows Quicken would produce. Otherwise, I would go the route of getting Windows Quicken, and running it inside a virtual WIndows machine.

Can you confirm that Moneydance can export to a Windows compatible qif file?

    Hi Ron

    Moneydance can export to a windows compatible qif file however there are limitations that may or may not affect you.

    The tags feature in Moneydance (similar to quicken classes) are not included in the export. And investment accounts are exported as regular bank accounts. Other than that everything else will be exported correctly.

    If you want to try this out and determine it it will meet your needs, you can download a free trial version of Moneydance from this link:
