    Hi Chris,

    It is necessary to export the data from Quicken, using Quicken, to a format like QIF that other programs can understand. If QIF is unavailable as an export option for Quicken 2016 please let me know.

    When importing your data, if the QIF file format is available to you when exporting from Quicken, you should follow these steps. In particular make sure you specify to Import into a new account rather than an 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.

    Hi Chris,

    Take a look at this KB article:

    You should use the free trial version of Moneydance to see if you can import your data.
