    It is necessary to export the data from Quicken then import it into Moneydance.Only Quicken can read the proprietary format Intuit uses. the You should find the following articles helpful.

    Hi Ron,

    The articles provided above are exactly what you need, they detail how you can import your data from Quicken to Moneydance.

    If you haven't already, 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. Although you will not be able to test on multiple systems, Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test importing your data.

    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, and thank you for your interest in Moneydance.

    The answer doesn't change you still need to export the files from Quicken into QIF format and import the QIF files into Moneydance.

    Dear dwg,

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    Another question: I have a Mc Notebook and a Mac desktop. Can I install the one purchase in both computers and how?

    I'm not a Mac user, but assuming you purchase Moneydance directly from the Infinite Kind Website you would download the software to both computers, install it, enter your license key, which you receive via email after your purchase.

    You are entitled to use Moneydance on as many computers in your household as you have for the purchase of one license (the license is basically per household not per machine).

    I you want to share the data between computers you have to move to data files to a shared location like dropbox . This is detailed in:

    I would also suggest you have a look at the Users Guide if you have not already done so:

    Thanks dwg, you’ve been very helpful.

    I’ve seen good reviews for Moeydance and am loping forward to trying it out.
