My Quicken will not export the QIF format, program simply hangs.

It does, however, export QFX for investment accounts.

Trying to import a QFX file into an investment account I get a file format error, unknown file type.

How to import investment accounts from Quicken into Moneydance?

    As far as I am aware Quicken does not export QFX files (QFX does not contain category information in any case so are of limited use for program transfers). It might say QXF which is a Quicken transfer format and is proprietary.

    If your Quicken data file is large exporting to a QIF file can take a long time. Are you sure Quicken is hanging or simple taking a long time to complete the process? To be sure run overnight then if it is not finished by the next day it is hanging.

    Hope this helps.
