    Hi Richard

    It is indeed the case that in Quicken 2015 Intuit have removed the option to export to QIF. They have an option to export to QXF (which should not be confused with the similarly named QFX). Unfortunately QXF is a proprietary binary format that only Quicken can read.

    There is no straight forward effective way of transfer data out of Quicken 2015 into Moneydance (or any other personal finance program). There is one work around that works for some people if their Quicken data is simple and does not include investment accounts. There are instructions in the link below. It might be worth a try but results vary.

    Thanks alot.
    I will give it a try now. Unfortunately, I will have to request a refund from Moneydance if it doesn’t work. Too bad, because Quicken is the most frustrating software I have ever dealt with. I think they must have written the Obamacare soft ware!

    I don't see a purchase in our customer database under the name Richard Giese. Did your purchase directly from our website or through a 3rd party such as the Mac App Store?

    Apple requires that you go through the Mac App Store's refund process to receive money back from purchases made through that service. Unfortunately, we cannot authorize the refund for App Store purchases on our end; you will have to go through their process on their site at http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact/

    If quicken allows you to create a report that can be opened by Excel that is in a reasonably consistent format, column wise, then it may be possible to extract the data an import it into Moneydance (and indeed other financial programs).

    This would be using various Excel spreadsheets and Excel add-ons that have been created and are freely available. This is a route that many in Australia have had to go as Reckon removed QIF support something like 10 years ago from the local product, the cynical might say to make it extremely difficult to change products.
