i had been use the quicken delux 2014, and i had DB from year 2000, with 3 different banking accounts, and 7 investment accounts
all the DB is store in one big QDF file
i had several questions :
- did you support non-unicode language (i don't need menu in different language , i just want to use remarks, and categories in different language then english)
- how painful will be the DB conversion, i had a lot of transactions, and i don't want to start correct them after the conversion

    Hi Yaron,

    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.

    Most customers are able to import their data without any issues. That being said, the QIF file format was never really intended for transferring all data between personal finance software and as such it may contain inherent ambiguities that will need to be manually corrected post import. How much manual correcting needs to be done is hard to predict. I'm afraid that typically investment accounts fair worse that regular accounts in this matter.

    I don't believe you will encounter any issues with languages using the software as you describe. However, I encourage you to download our free trial version and experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test importing your data from Quicken.
    If you decide to purchase the program at a later date you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions. You can download the trial version of Moneydance from here:

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