How do you transfer Data between Quicken for Windows and Quicken for Mac

Using 2017 Quicken for Windows. Want to install 2017 Quicken for Mac and share data back and forth (QIF data transfer). IS THIS POSSIBLE?

    No, not really.

    There is a conversion tool to get your Quicken Windows data into Quicken Mac.

    The same can't be said for the other way.

    My opinion...and take it for what it's worth, is:

    1 Purchase Parallels or VMWare, create a Windows partition in your Mac and run Quicken for Windows there.  You can then use the data file on both computers through backup on one and restore on the other.


    2 Find a remote viewer software, such as TeamViewer and remotely log into one computer or the other and pick ONE version of Quicken to use, either Quicken Windows OR Quicken Mac.  

    Even if you could convert .qif files back and forth, that's way too much work.
