Can Moneydance access Quicken Files? I am currently using Quicken, but am upgrading Widows 10 from Windows 7 on a new computer. I currently run Quicken 1017 but am no happy with with Quicken's annual fee for their current version. Thus my concern about being able to access my Quicken Date through Moneydance,

    Hello,

    Moneydance cannot directly read Quicken data files, as this is a propitiatory data format, owned and licensed by that company. To move your data, you will first need to export your data from Quicken into the QIF format. After that, you can follow these instructions for importing your data: https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/kb/importing-data-from-other-pro...

    I encourage you to download our free trial version from http://infinitekind.com/downloads and experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test things like importing from other programs and connections with your bank. If you decide to purchase the program at a later date (from http://infinitekind.com/purchase) you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions.

    In case you haven't found it yet, detailed information on how to use the program can be found at https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/kb

    Thank you.  I think my Quicken files are already QIF, so, maybe, I'll be able to get it done.

    Quicken stores its data in QDF files. To get QIF format files you have to explicitly "export" data from Quicken using the Export menu option. This does not remove the data from Quicken it just writes QIF files using the data.
