Importing from Quicken

I recently imported a file from Quicken. The account list was complete but not all had transactions. Is this because its a trial version or a limitation?

    There are no limitation on imported transactions in either the trial or unlimited version.

    The QIF specification is not complete, and it is pretty simplistic, so it is not able to represent everything that could be in an account, so you may have come upon a QIF limitation. Moneydance has not implemented every possible transaction type, so it could be a MD limitation as well.

    It really comes down to what sort of transactions are missing.

    Thanks for reply. The accounts are complete. Some just don't have any transactions on them but others are complete.

    You probably need to have a look at some of the entries in the QIF file to see what has happened, for example there may be missing entries. QIF files are in clear text format so any editor can open the files. You could open one and look to see if there are transactions for one of the accounts where you have missing data.
