Is there an upgrade path from Mac Quicken 2006 to a current version?

I put off upgrading Quicken 2006 on one of my iMacs because the upgrade reviews were never very positive. In addition, none of the versions ever offered enough new features compared to Windows versions. This also caused my Mac OS version to fall behind. Time for a change... I've been using Mint but still want my Quicken register features and History. Know it won't be easy...

    Hi all..

    smayer: The question is in the title...

    Ric: From Quicken 2006, there really isn't an upgrade path, because you need at least Quicken 2007 in order to import data into Quicken 2018 safely.. 

    Apologies for the inconvenience. 

    Respectfully,
    ~ Quicken Harold.

    I don't believe that is an accurate answer.

    Harold, you are wrong and deleting my post won't change that fact.

    Ric, although there may not be a direct upgrade path, there are a number of ways you can use to get your QM2006 data into QM2018 or another current QMac version.



    The bigger question you may want to answer for yourself is if a more recent version will meet your needs. You may find this recent discussion on that topic helpful in making that decision.

    Sorry...not sure how I missed the title.  :-(

    But the answer is not entirely correct. Though that is the recommended path, QM2018 does and should read QM2006 and QM2005 data directly because they are the same data structure. Only in rare cases does the data have to first pass through QM2007 first.

    Be careful. The off topic police don't like it if you point out they are not correct.
