Just purchased a new Mac desktop and want to transfer quicken data from Windows Pc. I followed support page instructions and was able to import accounts. The accounts are from various files in quicken and are not usable. I would like to try import again but when I download again the same accounts appear.

    Did you try starting a new file or are you importing into existing file? If the latter, try starting from scratch by creating a new file (File > New).

    I created a new file and got a file to transfer from quicken . Balances are correct but categories didn't transfer. All transactions are marked as a ATM Withdrawal

    Usually, when all transactions are being categorized with the same category it is because you did not set the option in the import window to "from another program." If you want MD to use the category information in the qif file you must set this option.
