    Hi Alan,

    When you're exporting from Quicken, you should follow the steps in this article to export your data in QIF format, and import to Moneydance. In particular make sure you specify to Import into new account rather than existing account. And you set the source to "From another program".

    It is highly recommended to export all Quicken data into a single QIF file, as doing so makes the import process much smoother. Please use the option in Quicken to export "all accounts," if available. The one exception to this is if you have accounts in more than one currency, is this is the case then you can follow these steps to export multiple QIF files.

    You won't be able to import using the file you have mentioned, as it is a .dat file. These are files generally contain data in text or binary format, which cannot be imported to MD.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance.
