Can I switch to Moneydance from Quicken and bring over my most recent quicken data file (65M) with me? When I started up Moneydance it picked a 4 year old quicken file, not my most recent file. I cant load my current Quicken file, which has a QDF suffix.

Can this be done?

    Hello,

    Moneydance cannot read the Quicken file format, as this is a propitiatory file format owned by Intuit. You will first have to use Quicken to export your data into a QIF format. Full instructions on moving from Quicken can be found at http://help.infinitekind.com/kb/importing-from-quicken-or-ms-money/...

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance,

    Thank for your quick response. I read the instructions after I posted and have now created a qif file. If I import, will it overwrite the info that was posted initially? Can I do this prior to purchasing?

    No, importing will not overwrite existing data. You will want to create a new blank Moneydance data file by going to File -> New from the menu bar, and then you can follow the import instructions for that file.

    Importing transactions do not count towards the 100 manual transaction limit for the trial version.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance,
