I'm having trouble getting into my Quicken program. To switch to Moneydance, is there a way of transferring the data now in Quicken?

    Quicken uses a proprietary data format and I am unaware of any other software that can read Quicken files. Thus to my knowledge you would have to use Quicken to open the files and export the data to the QIF format.

    Hi Harriet,

    Can you let me know what file formats are available to you when exporting from Quicken? If QIF file is available, you should follow these steps to import your data. 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 - if thats the case, then you can follow these steps to import multiple QIF files.

    Please let me know if QIF file format is not available to you, or you continue to encounter issues when importing your data.
