    What specific version did they give you?

    And BTW, when did you get QM2006 from them?

    Hmmm. according to docs it should be compatible with as far back as 10.2.8 but it is possible that Quicken quietly updated the minimum requirements without updating their documentation. You may need to try to get QM2005 from them.

    Looks like I am mistaken. It seems somehow the file was corrupted copying to the emulator I have running for tiger. I re-downloaded the file directly to the emulator and it runs, however it cannot open the quicken file from 2004... Maybe same thing happened with that file.

    Ok, Finally have the file loaded in quicken for mac 2006. Backed it up, and how I cannot load the file into 2017. I have also tried to import it into 2007. It just says could not load file. 

    Is there a special way you have to export the file from 2006?

    No special way. Simple do File>New and select to start with a Quicken 2007 file (2005 to 2007 are the same data file structure). 

    Do you get an error message? If so , what is it?

    Are you able to open your 2004 data file in QM2004? If so, I would troubleshoot that data file in QM2004. Try re-indexing it first. See this article:
    https://www.quicken.com/support/troubleshooting-data-file-problems-quicken-mac-2007

    NOTE: Be sure to have backups before you start.

    BTW, curious...are you running Tiger in an emulator? If so, what are you using?

    Reindexing didn't help. I am on chat with support. Looks like they are going to give me 2015 to try that. 

    Yea, I am emulating tiger. Major pain. I tried pearpc and 

    Qemu works well. Here is a tutorial

    I got the install cds for tiger from this awesome site.

    Finally got it imported. Similar to the other guy's post I had to save a copy from more recent years. I had data going back to 1999. So, I only exported 2008 - 2017 and it imported fine.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Are they giving you QM2015 or QM2005?

    Quicken 2015, 2016 and 2017 all use basically the same method to import Quicken 2007 (and 2006) files, so I wouldn't expect 2015 to import something that 2017 can't.

    You might try asking Quicken Support to give you a copy of Quicken 2007/Lion Compatible. This version of Quicken runs on all the modern Mac operating systems, right up through Sierra. If your file opens okay in Quicken 2007, and you can successfully sort it, run reports on old data, etc., it *should* import smoothly into Quicken 2017. This approach would at least let you ditch the emulator which is a variable none of us here (and no one at Quicken Support) can test with.

    QM2015. She eventually gave up and told me it couldn't be done. I also requested QM2007 for Lion and she told me she didn't have that...

    Have you tried the other approaches like doing a Save A Copy function? This will clean-up internal stuff in the data file and if there is a problem it is one way to detect it.

    They do have QM2007 LC...Other users have been able to get it very recently. BUT that will not help you as it cannot read QM2004 data files.

    I have it converted to 2006. I did try a save a copy function too. My next try will be to cut off some of the earlier years like you suggested in another post.

    Importing into 2017 and 2015 shows errors. 
    "An error occurred while preparing the file to be imported."

    Interesting....sound like a memory-like error...

    Note that you can import multiple QM2007 files into a single QM2016 file. I wonder if it would allow you to import 1999 to 2008.

    A long time ago, Quicken took down the link that used to make this available. If you do not have a backup, you may also try to find QM2007...but it must be v 16.0.x, NOT the LC version, v16.1.x or higher, as that requires Mac OS 10.6.8 or higher to run.
