Quicken on the web does not open my Quicken Data File.

I received Quicken email that reminded me that there is Quicken on the web. I clicked the link and Quicken on the web opened. It listed my Data File but it does not open that file and it does not populate any of my data. How does this work? Using Quicken Premiere 2019 R16.14.

    FIRST...be sure you have good backups before using this feature. Though it is hard to gauge the frequency with which this happens, enough users have reported their main data file getting corrupted after some time syncing with the online services like QMobile. And since QWeb uses the same back-end services, caution is prudent.

    That said, to sync any data to the online services, you have to go to your desktop file and select which files and budget to sync. After you do that and sync the data to the Quicken Cloud, your data should appear there.

    Hi @ James Butts ,

    Quicken on the Web will list all your Quicken Data Files, whether you have Synced them or not, that you have opened in the Quicken Desktop Program.

    You must sync the Data for you to see your Data on the Web. The Data on the Web, is not a true Backup of any sort. You can't restore it back to the Desktop.
