Can a 2018 data file be reverted to 2017

markisgoldmarkisgold Member ✭✭
A number of people have written that they’re trying 2018 for 30 days and if not satisfied will revert to 2017. However, if entries have been made to the data file.. can it then be used in a reinstalled 2017 program?

    I can't state this for fact, but from what I've read, NO. You would need  to have a v2017 file that has not been opened in 2018.

    Yes you
    can.

    Today I
    went back from 2018 Qwin de Luxe to 2017 Qwin de Luxe

    The 2018
    file loaded without problems in 2017, including the changes I made in Qwin 2018.

    First
    remove Quicken 2018 and install 2017.

    For
    instructions look here:

    Yes, I have done it also.

    After using 2018 Windows, you can return with same data file to 2016 or 2017 (Earlier versions will NOT work)

    Shouldn't have posted this without being sure of it.

    In fact you can go back as far as Quicken 2016.

    Can you continue to run Quicken for Mac 2016 once you upgrade to 2018?

    Can you continue to run Quicken for Mac 2016 once you upgrade to 2018?

    zaconline this question was for Quicken Windows.  And has a different answer for Quicken Mac (should have been asked on your own NEW POST from above).

    But since I think I know the answer I will.  Quicken Mac 2016 can't read a Quicken Mac 2018 data file, unlike in the case of Windows.  Quicken 2018 when it reads in a Quicken Mac 2016 data file it will convert it.

    On the other hand for Quicken Windows you can't easily run two different versions of Quicken, but that isn't true of Quicken Mac.  There isn't any problem running both versions (with different data files).
