    Hi Frank,

    Take a look at a few of these Moneydance KB articles relating to Quicken:

    Some users have had good luck importing from Quicken, others have had to jump through some hoops.

    The culprit is the QIF file format which was never really designed for moving financial data but it's the only thing that Quicken makes available.

    If I may make a suggestion, download the free trial version of Moneydance to see if it suits your needs.

    Yes data can be imported using the trial version, the only limitation of moneydance in trial mode is that you can manually only enter 100 transactions so imports are unlimited

    Note that you cannot import Quicken's QDF files these are proprietary as are the files of pretty much every financial management software so you have to export the data from other programs and the best format that is available is the QIF format. The only exception I cna think of is the old Quicken Essentials which moneydance has been able to import.
