Importing QIF from 2017 Quicken

When I import Quicken's QIF file that I exported many of the values come thru either incorrect or are shown as negative numbers in Moneydance. I have tried importing only one investment and all files after cleaning off (uninstalling) Moneydance and all it's files between new imports. Then reinstalled it with the same errors after importing the QIF files!

Any suggestions before I give up?

    Hi Len,

    Take a look through some of these QIF-related Moneydance KB articles.

    Keep in mind that initial balances are usually omitted from QIF files.

    Thank you again, Kevin. After much testing for reports, etc. I finally gave up on the program. Those links suggested to manually make adjustments but that was confusing and would have taken me hours. I’ll stick with Quicken and pay their darn yearly fee or use my older (no fee) version of Quicken and import the stock prices from Yahoo.
